Muddy Water's one room shack is inside this museum. Great collection of stage outfits & delta sound track makes these legends come to life. If you are a delta blues fan you must visit this museum. Discount fo Blues Society members.

Although this is not a large venue, it's packed with memorabilia and photos about musicians from the area. Almost too much to read. Wish they had more interactive options to listen to music like they have in Memphis at the Blues Hall of Fame. But...More

This a good museum for a music lover and fan of the blues. Stories about many of the delta blues men and women as well as memorabilia. The Muddy Waters room and cabin were a bonus. and a good gift shop

The museum is full of wonderful information, history and memorabilia. You could say too much and it does need some thought about the best way to lay it out. But you are soon absorbed in all the stories and thereby the journey of the blues....More
