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 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.

We had a Wedding Rehearsal Dinner for 50+ at this venue and it was absolutely the best place in Memphis to have an event!! It was beautiful but at the same time cozy and because of the history of this wonderful venue the younger people loved it and also the older generation loved it just as much! Several people told me that it was the best place for a RD that they had ever been to-and these are people that attend weddings ALL the time all over the place! The staff was great-I would give them all the highest rating you can give. They were all helpful, flexible, and so easy to work with the whole time!! It is priced well and has got to be the best deal in town for such a fantastic place! If you want that Southern (Memphis) elegant but cozy and historical feel-this is it!!

We had our son's Rehearsal Dinner at the Cotton Museum 9/13/13 and it could not have turned out more perfectly. Because I live in Atlanta I did all of the planning over the phone with Vanessa from the Museum. Her recommendations were right on about using Club Windward for catering and Bob Sinda for music. We could not have been happier with how beautiful everything looked and how well they took care of us and made our event a night to remember forever!!! Thank you thank you!!!
