  • The museum includes a collection of memorabilia from iconic blues legends through the ages. There are signed guitars, suits and dresses, travel gear, and much more. There displays are free-standing, tall cases with informational signage. They even have larger items like Muddy Waters' log cabin! When I was there they appeared to be planning an expansion into new galleries. My self guided tour took an hour or so. If you love the blues you simply cannot miss this place.
  • A great museum that any blues lover will appreciate , great exhibits with a ton of real artifacts and historical items. ?BTW , very reasonable priced.
  • Pretty nice museum with some really interesting artifacts. It could be a little bit more organized
  • Loved this place. Full of blue-related memorabilia and history. Very laid back and friendly - great chatting with Anthony.
  • Been on the "bucket list " and certainly did not disappoint. Very well laid out, with great memorabilia. Definitely worth the trip!
