We stopped by this museum more because we were in the area, than that we were interested in Jimmie Rodgers, but the woman who took us around was so enthusiastic and eager to share her knowledge that it spilled over and we had a great time. It's a VERY small museum, but full of Jimmie Rodgers artifacts, and it sits... More

Even if you are not a country music fan you will find this museum very interesting. It explains the history of country music which pretty much started with Jimmy Rodgers. The carousel is not far away and then you can eat at Weidmann's restaurant which was wonderful

Upon entering with my husband and children ages six and eight, the lady informed my children would not be interested so I need not tour. So we didn't and saved the $20.

I loved this place so much! Do not miss it if you are anywhere near Meridian, MS. As a singer and musician it was humbling and inspiring to learn about and see first hand the sacrifices that Jimmie Rodgers made to leave this awesome legacy of music for people to enjoy for all time. The staff couldn't have been more... More

The museum is in a very bad area. We would not take the risk if going back . The area has drive by shootings. A room with some old furniture.. Not impressed.

This small museum includes many items to tell the story of this musician. Some videos of his performances can be viewed. The guide is generous with information.

To enjoy the museum, I think you'd need to be old enough to know who Jimmy Rodgers was. The times were hard and his was harder than most. He lived with steam trains and died early with TB. Suggested as the contributor of some of the early great country music. A legend and pioneer. The museum is small and somewhat... More

The cost of admission is $8.00 and in my opinion overpriced, however there is a senior discount that will appeal to most visitors. The museum is a hodge podge collection of letters, furniture and pictures relating to the father of country music. The only piece worthy of the admission is the man's guitar, said to be worth over a million... More
