  • Must stop for Blues lovers. It's not big but has some cool things on display.
  • A fun walk through blues history. One of the best values in Memphis at only 10 dollars. Run by lovers of the blues, for lovers of the blues.
  • If you love the blues, you will appreciate this wonderful tribute to blues women and men at the Blues Hall of Fame. While learning more about inductees, visitors can use interactive touch screens to read bios, watch videos and play full-length tunes that are broadcast over a speaker placed over each display, filling the room with music. As I played by Bobby "Blue" Bland and Howlin' Wolf, a group of seniors came over to say they remembered the songs. The museum also features private listening booths. There is also a literal Hall of Fame with screens showcasing the inductees since 1980, when the Hall was started. Curator Nora Tucker has done a wonderful job putting the displays together, organizing them by genre such as country blues (Mississippi Fred McDowell, Robert Johnson) and city blues (Muddy Waters, Willie Dixon). The staff and volunteers were super friendly and helpful. Thanks Lonnie! The Blues Hall of Fame is housed in a former warehouse that has been beautifully refurbished. The Memphis downtown area, where the hall is located, is also on the come-up with new housing and restaurants. We were able to walk to the Saturday Farmer's Market and some shops after visiting the Hall. The National Civil Rights Musuem and the Lorraine Hotel is also located across the street. Overall a fantastic experience that I highly recommend.
  • Amazing little museum to check out the blues and its stories from the Mississippi Delta to the music venues of Memphis! Friendly employees, plenty of stories to learn about, and lots of great songs! Albert King, BB King, John Lee Hooker, Howlin Wolf, Ma Rainey, Muddy Waters, etc. - they're all covered here!
  • Great history of the blues
