This small, but beautifully curated museum covers the history of the Delta Blues and all the major musicians. It is absolutely fascinating! We took 2 1/2 hours to tour the museum but could have stayed longer. Admission: $10 general, $8 senior.

Good exhibits, just a little pricey. You can be through it all in 10 minutes if your interest is casual, 30 minutes if you really want to dig. It is very clean and well put together, just not much there.

You could spend half a day or more here looking at all of the items. They also have two short movies to enjoy.
