You pay only 10$ and you discover so many unexpected informations about the roots of the now days music that you forget you are standing over 2 hours just to follow up the interactive set the museum has so successfully organised.

We found this by accident and it turned out to be a great find. Walked through displays honoring the blues and early southern music performers. The displays included not only biographical material but stage costumes, musical instruments and personal items of interest to a fan....More

Great education and fun! This wonderful blues Museum provides fabulous education for both adults and children. While we were there they were teaching children the history, culture, geography, and music of the blues. Of course they were touching on slavery, civil rights, and prejudice in...More

Hi Rick, the statue outside our museum is of Little Milton, who was inducted into the Blues Hall of Fame in 1988. We're glad you visited!

We were there for a social function. The museum was ok and the temperature was unbearable. The heat inside made the function miserable.

Hi, we're sorry to hear you had an uncomfortable experience at our museum. We're currently working with our facilities manager on being better equipped for temperature control with large groups. Thank you for your feedback.

Self-guided tour, opportunity to read and hear Blues Artists from early years to present. Reasonable entrance fee. Across from Civil Rights Museum and near highly recommended by the locals Central BBQ.

Right across the street from the National Civil Rights Museum you may be tempted to try and do both of these attractions on the same day but I would advise against it, there is just too much to take in in one day. This museum...More
