The Delta Cultural Center is a museum dedicated to telling the story of the Arkansas Delta, but what is perhaps the most interesting and heavily emphasized portion of that history is its contribution to blues music. Although the museum offers different exhibitions, artifacts, and memorabilia, the best way to understand its purpose is through one of the music festivals held outside, such as the Arkansas Delta Family Gospel Festival or the Arkansas Blues and Heritage Festival, or by listening to the King Biscuit Time, which is the longest-running blues radio program in America.
