Museums in Clarksdale
The Delta Blues Museum
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?). Aside from its great collection, the museum also hosts temporary exhibits like photography collections about famous Delta bluesmen and the blues in general. The museum is open from 9-5 and there's a pretty good gift shop where you can pick up some tunes to continue your roadtrip.
