As we were in Clarksdale to see the infamous 'Crossroads', we decided we needed to stop in here and see the unique collection gathered by one man over the years. Wow...what an eclectic collection! Well worth the 5 bucks to get in!!!

The storefront of this place had me concerned at first as it looked very small but once inside we were pleasantly surprised. We had the honor of meeting and chatting with "Theo" whose love and passion for the Blues is infectious, his knowledge of our music is quite impressive. The collection that he has amassed is literally priceless; everything from Robert Johnson to some of our favorite musical acts are represented in his collection.

Unfortunately we were in a bit of a rush but you will want to give yourself 2-3 hours to really enjoy what Theo has put together. I cannot wait to go back and visit Theo's place again.

This unimposing storefront holds a wealth of memorabilia, one could spend an hour or four, depending on your inclinations. And it's all from one man's collection. amazing photos, posters, artifacts, Helpful guide if one wants a more formal tour.

There was less to see here than I had hoped but I was still glad to have been and I recommend it. There are plans to expand the collection, and it would be even better if and when this comes about.

Our visit was made all the more informative and enjoyable by the lovely hostess who clearly loved sharing her knowledge. Word of warning - allow plenty of time to peruse all the items on display - it's not a walk-through kind of place!
