This museum is a must see for Jimmy Rodgers fans. Lots of interesting items to see. It is, however, located in a very rough area of town. I would go in a group and mid morning.

This is a great collection of items about Jimmy Rodgers. The guide is wonderfully pationate about her job and they have Jimmy's original guitar. Movie included and admission is reasonably priced. Near the carousel, city park, and city pool.

This is a great place to visit. I will admit I had to look up who he was but I was so glad we stopped. It's a great piece of america and music history. A great bit to see.
