The Delta Cultural Center Depot Museum is located in the old Missouri Pacific Depot right off Cherry Street in Helena, Arkansas. The building dates back to 1912.
The depot not only focuses on railroad history, but as a location to display artwork and promote the Arkansas Delta. Here is student artwork displayed in the lobby.
On the second floor, the museum discusses the Battle of Helena which took place on July 4, 1863.
The bell of the Pelican is on display. The Pelican operated as a train ferry across the Mississippi River from Lula to Helena.
Exhibits focus on farming in the Delta, hunting, Native American history, and the Mississippi River.
