This was my 3rd trip to the Delta. I love the culture of the area and have friends there. It's quite different in the last six years and will soon be changing more the next year or two. It will still be a good visit even if a repeat. So much about the history truly gives appreciation for the Blues.... More

The BB King museum in Indianola is one of the best museums I've visited. BB King led an interesting life and was a wonderful musician. His story is very well told at the museum. Love the blues!!!

I have had the pleasure of taking several groups to the BB King Museum over the past few months. Even if you are not a fan of blues music, you will truly enjoy this establishment. From the beginning, with a film on BB King's life, through the entire complex, your attention is held by the wide array of music memorbilia,... More

This is not exactly a place that a lot of people will be traveling from one place to another and make a decision to stop there. Not sure how the museum came to be, but somebody did a great job. If you're traveling into the Delta area to hear some good blues music and have a free afternoon this is... More

We spent several hours here, just mesmerized by the well-designed exhibits that trace BB King's career while placing those events within the cultural context of the American South of his era. Truly a gem!

This is a wonderful museum honoring the blues great BB King. The museum is connected to part of a old cotton ginmill.
