This is by some standards a small museum, but it is jam-packed with music memorabilia, especially vinyl records. In fact, it is probably one of the best rock/blues record collection ever. I was thinking that this collection is worth lots and lots of money. It...More

As much as I love the Delta Blues Museum, there is almost more to appreciate here from an international perspective - for those of us who grew up in a similar time, we will relate to the newspaper clippings and stories about our favourite musicians...More

This is one of the more interesting places I've been. First, there is so much memorabilia crammed into such a small space. The tour guide took us through the first room and explained about Clarksdale local blues performers. Then, we explored the rest of the...More

If you are into rock and blues memorabilia, this is a good place to stop. Brought in by Theo, a Dutch collector who wants to preserve the culture and music, and invest in Clarksdale. There are lots of music options and other stuff for purchase...More
