The Catfish Museum and Visitors Center is housed in an old railroad depot. Indoor exhibits feature hand crafted displays by Mississippi artisans using paper relief, ceramics, metal and wood carvings. A video also explains the various aspects of catfish farming including constructing ponds, hatching eggs and seining. Outdoors, a flower sculpture made of spawning cans welcomes visitors as they arrive. Hatching tanks and seining nets complete the display by the entrance. Last, but not least, is a miniature catfish pond featuring a 40 foot catfish fountain. "King Cat" reigns.
The Catfish Museum & Visitor Center is opened Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. Admission is free.
