We were passing anyway and needed to make a lunch stop, however I would not go out of my way for this museum. A little bit to introvert for my taste. If you don’t know the blues history you probably won’t get much out of...More

I spent 3 unintended days in Clarksdale and learned so much. This museum is a great start to any visit. I am not an expert in music or blues, but found all the personal touches interesting and educational
