REVIEWS OF B.B. King Museum & Delta Interpretive Center IN Mississippi

William Hibler

A must see for all, blues & BB King fans..with hands on multi-media, videos, photographs, memorabilia, located in BB's home of Indianola, MS.

Thelma Green

Friendly staff, beautifully designed exhibit, fantastic videos!!

Michael Miller

Good museum for a legend. Very nicely built. Includes a former cotton mill where BB King worked as a kid. There are plans to expand the museum in the near future. Price is slightly high in my opinion. You will need about 1.5 hours. If you can come on certain Thursdays, there is live music. Call ahead and ask about it.

Robert Osborne

Extremely well presented museum and final resting place of The King of The Blues World Wide!

Gareth Latcham

Very well put together museum that covers B.B. King's life. It makes good use of artifacts and videos to supplement the placards and pictures.

Bridget Igo

So happy I got to share this experience with my 11 year old daughter! This is a place that represents such a vital time in our society & runs MUCH deeper than music! Thanks so much! Got movie "The Life of Riley" Highly recommend!

Fred Becker

Even better than I expected. Don't miss the display on progression of blues musicians to the modern era (listen on headphones to their music and then how it influenced specific artists and songs) we spent over 4 hours. Great price with the Groupon too... See if it's still available

Veronica Wilson

Awesome staff❤

Such a great homage to the King of the blues. The exhibit is beautiful, punctuated with videos and artifacts. The text isn't heavy and is easy to read. We follow his career and also get contextual information. His grave is next to the building and his tour bus parked outside.

Great museum! Went here for the premiere of the Fannie Lou Hamer Find Your Voice Student Film premiere and the location was excellent, the staff was friendly, and the museum was very clean and nice!

Wow, wow, wow! I didn't even know I liked BB King nor how very talented he was until I visited this museum. Very nicely arranged with lots of brief but engaging videos, pictures, artifacts, and writings sharing BB's life story in a respectful manner. It hasn't been updated since his death, however, other than the fact that his burial place is on the grounds for people to visit.

Ann Strickland

Great place to visit very well set out worth a visitif in the area.

barbara murphy

It was nice. Here you make your own fun by interacting with the Band at BB King's Blues Club. The food alright not the greatest but g9id if you hungry. No free parking but it is a controled security area for parking for tourists, etc. where there's then plenty walking down Beale Sreet to patronize blues clubs, and sight seeing for all Beale Street businesses. It is all the way live music that makes you feel good with that "Down Home Blues". I really enjoyed my visit as I'm from Chicago and Chicago loves the Blues.

Carthal Thrower

To high for poor people. To do

Inez Jackson

It was good history there.I enjoyed it.

Thomas Wichie Jr.

This Memorial of the king of Blues it was life changing for me. And I say the delta blues spirit is well and alive and its worldwide by the power of the holy spirit of God. It is my earnest prayer that the museum will open up a small little music store for the children that can afford a piece of instrument to play music to God like BB King did Amen in Jesus name.
