Now you can share in the rich heritage of Humphreys County at the Catfish Museum and Welcome Center in beautiful downtown Belzoni, Mississippi. Located in the renovated IB&B Depot, the Catfish Museum and Welcome Center is a testament to the history and culture of the land and its people.

Features hand crafted exhibits by state artisans of the renowned Mississippi Craftsmen's Guild. An entertaining video presentation shows the complete story of the catfish from fingerling to frying pan. Presiding over the outside exhibit is "King Cat," the world's largest catfish, measuring over forty feet.

Outside the Catfish Museum and Welcome Center, sculptures fashioned from spawning cans, hatchery tanks, and seining nets dot the landscape. In fact, Belzoni boasts the largest collection of outdoor sculpture per capita in the State.
