When you visit the Cotton Museum, you're treading on the legendary floor of the Memphis Cotton Exchange where cotton traders once stood at the center of the global cotton economy. Once, only the elite members of the Cotton Exchange were allowed to enter.

Today, this spectacular room is open to the public and is devoted to sharing the story of cotton – the crop that created empires, transformed American culture and changed the history of a nation and the world.

The Cotton Museum will be closed Monday, September 1, 2014, in observance of Labor Day.


Monday - Saturday
10am to 5pm
12pm to 5pm
