“Interesting and cool museum”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

The way they have displayed the items in the museum is great. Its quite newly built/refurbished and the gift shop sells some good CDs too.

“A little off-beat, but interesting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

Lots of stuff to see, but it helps to know a little history of the music and some appreciation for it before you get there.

What an awesome collection and wonderful exhibit! Absolutely amazing music collection covering 50 years of music with a truly world-wide treasure trove. You will be happy you visited this fun spot in the Mississippi Delta. Theo, the Dutchman, is a great host!

“great trip through Rock & Blue history”

Your time will be well spent going through this museum. I visited back in 2008 and again now and enjoyed it completely both times. From early blues history to John Lennon erotic sketches, you will enjoy!
