Nicely displayed and great choice of items tell you the story of the blues in this historical part of America. This is where it all happened and where the cradle of the blues was. I am so glad we visited Clarksdale.

Well done exhibits. A bit repetitious in the display, lots of reading required. But full of interesting and fun facts. I am glad we went. Gift shop had some nice unique goodies as well. Well worth the low price of admission.
