Delta Cultural Center

141 Cherry Street, Helena, AR 72342, USA

The Delta Cultural Center presents and interprets the history of the Arkansas Delta. Included in the exhibits are areas dedicated to the Civil War. The exhibitions are split between two museums: The Depot and The Visitors Center. The Depot features the exhibit “A Heritage of Determination,” which details the history of the Delta from its earliest inhabitants, into early settlement, through great Mississippi River floods. On the upper floor of the Depot, “Civil War in the Delta” gives visitors insight into Union occupation and the Battle of Helena. The Visitors Center, located one block north of the Depot, features the “Delta Sounds” music exhibit, a live radio studio, changing exhibit space, and the Museum Store.
