“"Great Collection"”
Reviewed January 29, 2014

This is a small place packed with an amazing collection of items from Rock and Blues greats. The price is very inexpensive for such a rich experience. The staff is very informative about the contents. If your lucky, Theo, the owner, will be there to answer any questions you may have about this collection. Give yourself ample time to tour this gem of a collection.

“Have to go see it!”
Reviewed January 7, 2014

The personal collection of a music lover set up as a museum. Marc is awesome! She is full of information about Clarksdale and happy to share with you. Expect to spend a couple of hours. If you love blues and rock n roll...a must place to visit.

“Worth a stop for sure”
Reviewed November 13, 2013

Stopped in the storefront not knowing what to expect. I didn't actually go into the museum, but did engage the manager in conversation. She was awesome, explained how the museum came to be, her personal story and the vision for Clarksdale. I was ready to move there.

“This man collected what I wish I had!”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Not all of what you see here is rare, but all of what you will see is a walk back into the early days of rock and the blues. Some items are exceptional, but many are LP album covers that will take you back.
