1 review of The Delta Blues Museum

Tamlyn Mueller

Great museum about Muddy Waters and the Delta Blues

The Delta Blues Museum is a 100% MUST for any fan of delta blues. The museum, located in Clarsksdale, Mississippi, has a one-of-a-kind collection of artifacts and memorabilia from legendary blues greats like Muddy Waters, Big Mama Thornton, B.B. King, and Charlie Musslewhite.

The museum is located in a historic freight train depot and its primary aim is to educate and interest a new generation of music fans about the regional and national importance of the Delta Blues and Delta Blues artists. There is a permanent collection which has a variety of B.B. King's famous "Lucielle" guitars and the actual shack-house where Muddy Waters grew up just outside of Clarksdale. It's a really unique museum and a chance to learn about some our America's most important, yet least recognized artists (did you know, for example, that Big Mama Thronton wrote "Hound Dog" of Elvis Presley fame?).
