Visitors from around the world come to the Delta Music Museum, which highlights favorite sons Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley, Percy Sledge, Irma Thomas, and Leon �Pee Wee� Whittaker and other Mississippi Delta area performers.  Tourists from 38 states and 14 countries have visited the museum.  

Olar Moore of Ferriday, who played a key role in making the museum a reality, said, �We have a great deal to be proud of here. The museum is one big way to show the world how proud we are of what we have to offer.�

Next door to the museum is a 1920s-era Arcade Theater that will become part of the museum in the future, with a concert hall, a mini-recording studio, and children�s music shows.  There is a gift shop with autographed t-shirts, caps, celebrity CDs, and music memorabilia. 

The museum frequently entertains guests with live music performances during museum tours.Jerry Lee Lewis - Hall of Fame 2002
