The Museum of the Mississippi Delta is at the crossroads of Delta history and art. The archaeology exhibit includes the largest collection of Native American trade beads in the southern United States, and artifacts and furniture from the home of former Choctaw Chief Greenwood Leflore are on display in the Malmaison Room.
Pictures, Implements & Battles
The museum boasts a room dedicated to the agricultural history of our region with photographs and farming implements on display. A Civil War-era cannon and a model of the battle of nearby Fort Pemberton are featured in the Leflore County Military History exhibit, focusing on the effect of various wars on Greenwood and its citizens.
A walk-through diorama of a Mississippi swamp, coupled with a hands-on natural science room, are always favorites of younger visitors. A historical timeline shows significant events and people in Leflore County's history augmented with artifacts, photographs and documents. The Museum of the Mississippi Delta also houses the area's most extensive treasure of regional art.
