Ferriday, Louisiana is hometown to three famous cousins -- Jerry Lee Lewis, Mickey Gilley and Jimmy Swaggart. But our museum features many others such as Aaron Neville, Fats Dominoe, Irma Thomas, Pee Wee Whittaker, Percy Sledge and many more. Come discover the hidden gems in the Delta Music Museum and hear the funny and interesting stories as only our wonderful tour guides can tell with a flavor of local history.
