Very well done and so interesting. We spent much longer than expected since there were so many different displays to look at and so much history told so well. The remodeling of the old building housing the museum alone is worth the visit! We bought some CDs and played them all the way home on our cross-country trip.

Anyone who lives the blues or even remotely interested needs to see the amazing display of history. The gift shop is not hokey rather it has a great selection of blues memorabilia and wonderful reads.
