This is the private collection of a Dutch Blues fan who retired and relocated to the area. It's overwhelming to imagine how long it took to amass the number of eclectic items contained in this museum. Don't miss the video. It's lengthy, but gives a...More

Had a superb visit here, they have some fascinating memorabilia including a family tree if music, wish they had them for sale, you xan ask questions of the helpful staff or just browse at your own pace. If you like music don't pass it by.

This is definitely a worthwhile stop if you are travelling through the Clarksdale, Mississippi area on a blues trip. Privately owned but surprisingly packed full of music history, this is a perfect stop (especially on Sundays when the 'official' Delta Blues Museum is closed). The...More
