“Better things to do”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2012

The cost of admission is $8.00 and in my opinion overpriced, however there is a senior discount that will appeal to most visitors. The museum is a hodge podge collection of letters, furniture and pictures relating to the father of country music. The only piece worthy of the admission is the man's guitar, said to be worth over a million dollars. The real jewel of the city, not even mentioned on things to do is the Dentzel carousel located across the park from the Jimmy Rogers Museum. Go, ask for a tour with Brandon!

“A Pleasant Journey down Country Music History”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

We spent about one hour at the Jimmy Rodgers Museum in Meridian, Ms. The docent had grown up in the City and provided lots of interesting stories about Jimmy Rodgers and the music industry of that era. It's small, but dedicated to a man that is considered to have been the father of country music. Watching the old footage of his performances are very interesting. From rock, to blues, to yodeling, Jimmy Rodgers holds an important role in American Music.
