They have some great displays and do a fairly thorough job at covering all the bases. Staff was super friendly and the museum was pretty comprehensive about the Blues development and movement. If you are a Blues fan, you would probably love it.

Stopped off here having visited the BBKing museum in Indianola. This is a basic assembly of donated & acquired items from a wide number of delta blues influences & those further afield (Robert Johnson to Koko Taylor). It's self guided and arranged by person, with...More

This is a quirky museum, clearly a work of passion and love by people who were not professional museum exhibitioners.
