Excellent blues museum right off HWY 61. Very nice collection of vintage guitars and harmonicas. Tells the blues story through the people who brought it alive. Good start to the Mississippi blues trail.

Looked like a nice place. Too bad it was closed when we stopped by. If it's Sunday don't bother stopping.

Had the opportunity to spend some time visiting this excellent museum that extols the highlights and virtues of this iconic movement in the history of music. You can even do a self-recording and send it to yourself!
