Now, I am not a Museum person, BUT I really enjoyed the (Riley) B. B. King Museum. As we were completing our visit , 50 visitors from England were coming in after us. What a treat.

It's out of the way but worth the trip. We drove from Vicksburg to visit B.B. King's grave. It's a beautiful place and very well laid out. You don't have to go through the museum to see his grave. The gift shop is well stocked...More

In the middle of the Mississippi Delta region this museum would be "first rate" in any major city on the planet. The facility is relatively small and a few hours is more than enough time to enjoy the experience. Likely you'll spend as much time...More

If you love BB, if you love music, if you want to learn about the MS Delta, if you want to learn about growing up poor in the south and overcoming it, you simply must visit this place!!!

If you didn't already understand the importance of BB King before visiting, you will get it once you experience this museum. His musical and cultural contributions touch all of us. The museum is tucked into a quiet neighborhood. The tour bus is right out in...More

Really excellent museum from start to finish, worth every penny of the $15 entrance fee. Information about not only BB King and his humble beginnings but a comprehensive look at the whole era of blues music and civil rights, put together in such a way...More

Everything in this museum is first class; very well done. Along with telling B.B's life story, it's a wonderful history lesson. You don't have to be a B.B. King fan to enjoy this museum. Anyone would enjoy it. We had lunch at Betty's Place which...More

A true tribute to the King! Displays were clear, easy to read and went in order. I learned somethings I didn't know about this great music icon. I was really impressed and spent a lot more time here than I thought. Miss you, BB. This...More

I stopped here because I like the music of B.B. King. It was well worth my time! It reminded me of my younger years, of being in the cotton fields and looking at the south end of a Northbound mule. :-) But most of all...More

HI MO, I would like to know if you hired a car to go to the museum please, as myself and my two sons over 21 intend to visit on route from Memphis, where we visited last September. I am in a dilemma as to whether to hire a car from Memphis or do you know of any public transport. Julie from the Uk.
