Right across the street from the Ground Zero Blues Club. Definitely worth going inside. Lots of music memorabilia and original clothing.

I spent 3 unintended days in Clarksdale and learned so much. This museum is a great start to any visit. I am not an expert in music or blues, but found all the personal touches interesting and educational

While in Clarksdale we decided to check out the museum and I found it to be very interesting. Learned a lot about "Blues" music and the artist! I would recommend if you're in the area to check it out.

The museum does not provide too much information about was is exposed... when you are not an expert is almost impossible to appreciate the exposition. You will find only detailed information about Muddy Waters.

Great find in this rural unspoilt town. Two of Clarkdales greatest exports Muddy Waters and Ike Turner are represented in exhibitions here. Amazed at extent of local talent and pleased to see how their memories and music lives on.

The employees very friendly and informative. The music is full of such interesting memorabilia. You take your time and stroll they the museum reading up on all the different blues players and the impact the blues made in music. No photography allowed inside of building.
