Stopped in while traveling Beale and was overwhelmed by the amount of memorabilia packed in to a pretty small space. You could tell that the folks working there wanted to share stories about pieces throughout. Would recommend stopping in for anyone who loves music.....Blues or otherwise

Very kool place. Lots of memorabilia and history of the blues. Guides are there to help out if you need or want more information. When you leave you are in the middle of the action along Beale Street. Very fun place. Just wished they had some live music when we toured.

What a nasty and not well kept museum. As a lover of music I was embarrassed for this place. Never renovated anything, the owners/caretakers clearly don't care about it.
