Delta’s museum collections storage lifted spirits to heights not experienced since before Katrina
In late 2017, during the state’s bicentennial, the landmark Mississippi Civil Rights Museum opened its doors to visitors from across the state and nation. The eight galleries at the Mississippi Civil Rights Museum focus unflinchingly on Mississippi’s troubling past and its role as geographical ground zero for a national Civil Rights Movement. A decade prior, the hurricane winds of Katrina forced the shutdown of the Mississippi Museum of History. The collections of the Museum were salvaged and the state’s most treasured artifacts emerged from floodwaters to greater visibility than before, now exhibited and stored at two conjoined museums, protected by advanced, environmentally-sealed museum collections storage from Delta Designs.

Preserving the Dry Coral Collection
