Catfish Row Museum
The Catfish Row Museum provides a cultural heritage experience that showcases the unique and diverse aspects of Vicksburg — from its music, history and storytelling to its vibrant food heritage, worship and the visual arts. Staying true to David Cohn’s declaration that the Mississippi Delta ends on Catfish Row in Vicksburg, the Museum brings the Catfish Row of historic Vicksburg back to life through a broad cultural exploration of the events, places, stories and vices that helped shape its culture.
Sense of Place
Vicksburg was and still is a place where people work hard and play hard. Considered by many to be a city of the Old South, our stories reveal Vicksburg as a place of several Souths. Catfish Row, as a vital part of the Mississippi Delta, is best known for its cultural expression. Considered the fertile crescent of American culture, the music, art, literature and food reflect the adaptations of many people and are an expression of their original roots.
