About The Cotton Museum

Have your event in history!
For an event space that truly reflects the southern charm and unique history of the city of Memphis, there is no better location than the Cotton Museum at the Memphis Cotton Exchange. Located at the corner of Union Avenue and Front Street, this historic landmark sits in the heart of downtown Memphis, just two blocks west of the Peabody Hotel.

The Cotton Museum tells the amazing story of King Cotton here on the original trading floor of the Exchange. The trade floor was the heart of a regional economy, a crossroads for many cultures, and a place where fortunes were made and lost.

Built in 1922, the Cotton Exchange Trade Floor features 3,200 square feet of gorgeous ornate 1920s architectural detail, 30 foot ceilings, and beautiful arched windows. The trading floor has enjoyed a full restoration and this once private club is now open for your guests to enjoy.

The Museum space is the perfect venue for your private events, from rehearsal dinners to wedding receptions to birthday and Christmas parties. The room is tastefully put together and full of artifacts and memorabilia, leaving you with a small decorating budget. Complete with a catering kitchen and two large restrooms, it’s an ideal space for entertaining. The Museum also boasts the uncommon convenience of a parking garage next door. The event staff provides all clients with packages tailored to suit their needs. For your convenience, we are happy to accommodate your requirements and work with other
vendors to make your event a success.

Unique, historic charm, an opportune location and reasonable rates make the Cotton Museum the perfect choice for your next event!

    I love the cotton museum. It's historic and a fantastic setting for any event. The staff was wonderful and so helpful. And the price is a huge deal for such a great space.

    This place is so nice to have a function. They provided tables, chairs for our wedding party. We had 90-100 people and it was not crowded at all. The only decorations we had was centerpieces. The venue is so decorated with art and cotton memorabilia that none other was needed. The staff was so easy to deal with and i would highly recommend this venue.

    I did a 60th birthday for my sweetheart and it was fabulous. The staff at The Cotton Museum, made it so easy, unbelievably easy. They set the bar up inside one of the booths, adorable! The Museum at night, becomes a great party venue. It's large enough for people to be able to mingle around, but also intimate enough that you feel like you can get around to speak to everyone.
    I would definitely recommend The Cotton Exchange for any type of party.
