REVIEWS OF Delta Blues Museum IN Mississippi

Anna Wysocki

Lots of amazing history.

Jan van der Heide

(Translated by Google) Nice museum. As a blues fan probably great. Do not like it. (Original) Leuk museumpje. Als bluesfan waarschijnlijk geweldig. Vind het wel leuk.

Charlotte Ornemark

A must see in this area!

sean Jay

Pretty nice museum with some really interesting artifacts. It could be a little bit more organized

Mary Nelson-meicher

Fun and interesting

Adam

I would call it more of a collection than a museum (especially when compared to the B.B King museum in Indianola). It has a very large collection of blues memorabilia but very little information about each artist except for Charles Musselwhite who has entire section.

damon peters

I was intimidated just being in the building. This place is amazing. So much history that we need to teach and learn. Muddy Waters “Plowin’ don’t pay”.

Charlotte Bailey

I love this place

Jimmy Lange

Delta Blues Museum is a pearl. Just a couple of minutes from the Blues highway, it has some interesting props. However, the most interesting things for me in these kind of museums are the stories. They have some awesome stories, and a more elaborate one regarding Muddy Waters. Check it out yourselve, I’d say it is definitely worth it. Oh and walk a bit in the neighbourhood, because it all looks like a movie set to me!

Lisa Runnels

Awesome food and drink and had an awesome time!

Gabriel Muñoz

(Translated by Google) Blues connoisseurs can not fail to visit the Mecca of this style of music. It is located in an area of authentic deep America. Streets of film. (Original) Los entendidos del blues no pueden fallar en la visita de la meca de este estilo de música. Se encuentra en una zona de la auténtica América profunda. Calles de película.

barb carter

Great changing exhibits of all things related to blues music and the wonderful artists.

Rainer Jilke

(Translated by Google) An excellent and interesting museum. The short detour is totally worth it. (Original) Ein ausgezeichnetes und interessantes Museum. Der kurze Umweg lohnt sich total.

Marion Wilson

A great place to visit

jacqueline pines

Very nice if you really love blues. Had a lot of info that I was not aware of.

Johan Loisen

Clarksdale, home of the blues

Hugo Hackenbush

$10 admission. Plan on 1 hour. Muddy Waters childhood home (log cabin) is the key attraction. Various outfits worn by blues performers, kiosks providing background on them, and various artifacts / instruments/ personal items.

Tom Moss

I love the blues and this was a great venue, to connect people with all of the blues history and tradition found in the Clarksdale area

Bryce Caster

A small museum honoring the Blues and its roots in the Mississippi Delta. Hopefully they can expand with more exhibits.

Tim Palmer

The museum includes a collection of memorabilia from iconic blues legends through the ages. There are signed guitars, suits and dresses, travel gear, and much more. There displays are free-standing, tall cases with informational signage. They even have larger items like Muddy Waters' log cabin! When I was there they appeared to be planning an expansion into new galleries. My self guided tour took an hour or so. If you love the blues you simply cannot miss this place.

Amelia Cooper

Very interesting and informative

Latin Spen

Awesome place with lots of blues history!!!

A shot of delta blues with fried green tomatoes, fried pickles and sweet potato fries washed down with a local beer made from pecan husks.

Lisa Guidice

We all went to Museum together!!!

Matthew Lineberry

Wonderful museum. They have expanded greatly over the years. Staff are very polite. Nice gift shop. If you love blues music or Southern culture and history - it's a very nice place to visit.

Dale Monroe

The museum is not very large but I could have easily spent 3 hours there. It contains a wealth of blues history. There are numerous video displays featuring interviews or performances. Most of the exhibits require you to read in order to understand the significance of a particular exhibit. I'm willing to bet that you'll learn a lot if that's what you want to do. Nice facility, helpful, kind staff.

Laura Diaz

Great place to visit. Love the history.

Thomas Barnes

Lots of history about blues and people who sang and play. Lots of life stories of the struggles of those people very good place to visit

Jack V. Horner Jr.

It's the Blues, man.

Juanita Proffitt

An extensive collection

Paolo Mazzoli

(Translated by Google) Very beautifull! Small but very nice, with guitars, clothes and much more. You can't take pictures inside. To see absolutely. Even Clarksdale is very pretty and if possible it is worth thinking about spending an evening in some club in the city. (Original) Bellissimo! Piccolo ma molto bel curato, con chitarre, vestiti e tanto altro. Non si possono fare foto all'interno. Da vedere assolutamente. Anche Clarksdale è molto carina e se possibile vale la pensa passare una serata in qualche locale della città.

Roni Keini

Great place to visit for all blues lovers.

Tracy Powers

Lot of information on Delta blues

Bego

(Translated by Google) It is worth going. We were alone visiting the museum, with background blues music that is activated from one of the information posters. I loved it. (Original) Merece la pena ir. Estábamos solos visitando el museo , con música de blues de fondo que se activa desde uno de los carteles de la información. Me gustó mucho.

Michiel Appelman

Beautiful museum that we enjoyed every inch of. A must-see while visiting Clarksdale.

L8G

I love the Delta.

Deb DAndrea

One of the best museums I've been in - wow, so much history, take your time to digest each exhibit. Well done, well done.

c.e. Ware

Great place to visit for your Blues history.

Connie Willis

Very well done. Friendly.

Gerrit de Vries

Emily Thompson

Great Place!

Timothy Spencer

Really well done, for the area I was expecting things to struggle, but when you're inside, it is a very nice place. Mississippi gets behind its blues.

Charles Webster

A great introduction into the Delta Blues and the people who made it all happen

Danette Banks

Steve Grauberger

A must see in Clarksdale.

Dana Brown

Very extensive & thorough.

Eorma Shields

Great blues history

George Clark

A destination attraction for those who like blues, R&B, and the roots of rock. Set in an old railroad depot, this museum celebrates the Delta blues and its influence. We weren't sure if it was open when we pulled up because you can't see people inside from the parking lot. But don't be deterred. It was open. Lots of memorabilia, a great place where I leaned the names of many new-to-me classic and more recent artists and learned more about those who are more widely known. Painted gas can "Chikan" guitars were a fun visual highlight. The gift shop had some nice quilted items referring back to a famous blues railroad intersection--where the Southern meets the Dog. The t-shirts were good, but honestly, I preferred the more colorful ones at the Tunica County highway visitor's center. You wouldn't expect that, so if you're traveling south from Memphis, don't pass up the Tunica "shack." Only four stars because photography is prohibited. I hope they change this because people would like to be able to show their friends pictures and encourage them to come. Enjoy your visit to this town that is rich in history, music, and spirit.

Alexandra Roscheck

Biggest collection of Blues related items, put together simply but providing a good understanding on how Blues started and became what it is today, the musicians and their stories, and their guitars and outfits

AFrame Wind Kits

My goal is to tour the entire Mississippi Blues Trail. This is a must-see..

Charlie Thieme

Amazing place for the blues enthusiasr. Too many things to mention, but standing in Muddy Waters' house was awe inspiring. Be sure to check out the gift shop, many blues related items at very decent prices, not commercialized at all

david smith

I always make it a priority to stop at the Delta Blues Museum when in the Memphis area. They have displays of major Blues legends as well as many others. If you love the Blues it has to be on your list of places to visit. Outstanding!

Ma Mercè Vidal i Damunt

(Translated by Google) Little but it is good. It's funny to go there next to the bar of the black actor Freman. One place should keep as it was. (Original) Petit pero esta be .Es curios anar alla al costat al bar de l actor negre Freman.un lloc q ha conservar tal com estava.

Cati Zambrano

Love it

ann marie c

Very nice learn about the blues artist place was clean and spotless

Cheryl Lessard

Great place! So much to see and learn. No picture taking allowed inside.

Michael Echols

If you are a blues fan or even just a fan of history this is a place you need to check out if you are ever in the area. Such a great museum

Gene Wisniewski

Blues history brought to the forefront.

Great history of the Blues to read about learn more on the subject!

Cj Dunklee

We loved the history of the blues. A must see

Marilyn Schiess

Been on the "bucket list " and certainly did not disappoint. Very well laid out, with great memorabilia. Definitely worth the trip!

Rahnesha Selph

A lot of knowledge, also has a children instrument practice with amazing music teachers.

Jason Stafford

Great history of Clarksdale music history and the Blues Highway! Mississippi Delta!

Billie Hilliard

It was awesome, but a real shame that we couldn't take pics. It would've been nice if they would've at least had a book with pictures of the exhibits or a cool photo prop set up.

Leonardo Borges

A great heart for a small place. Everything about the history of the blues art in the region and in Mississippi also. So many curiosities of local artists and a lot of good music is waiting for you there. Don't touch the pieces, don't take pictures of some parts and have a great time at Delta Blues Museum.

David Williams

Great exhibit although small.

Sandy Guidoni

A small collection that is relatively unfocused. Displays were not well done. Some very cool stuff but not worth going out of your way for.

Dallas Boyd

Nice place lots of history

michelle d

David Pederson

Loved it.

Mark Pillow

Very interesting. Take your time. Lots to see and learn.

Selcuk Soner Uras

(Translated by Google) This museum, where you can find blues where the American National Archives managed to enter and the sections of Muddy Waters' life, is a nice stop for music lovers. The American National Archives and the sections of Muddy Waters' life. (Original) Blues müziğin Amerikan Ulusal Arşivleri'ne girmeyi başardığı kulübeyi ve Muddy Waters'ın yaşamından kesitleri bulabileceğiniz bu müze müzikseverler için güzel bir mola / This museum is a nice stopover for music lovers, where you can find the hut where the blues music is able to enter the American National Archives and the sections of Muddy Waters' life.

Joe R Collins

Love the history found there!!

Matthew Fredenburg

Amazing history lesson.

Fabian Muñoz

(Translated by Google) Humble but well documented and carefully walk through the early blues and jazz. (Original) Humilde pero bien documentado y cuidado paseo por los inicios del blues y jazz.

Karen Hill

Incredible!!! Awesome!!!

mike ankner

Good overview of blues...focusing on clarksdale.

Stevie Jo

It was closed but a must see for any blues fan. You can feel the rich vibes coming from this place. Close to the crossroads

Keith Kidd

Nice Museum complete with Muddy Waters cabin and a Lomax recording vehicle on display. Lomax was the Smithsonian sponsored ambassador hired to record the native artists who were creating the blues.

Norman Cheung

If I was more of a blues fan I would've loved it. Not bad for a free museum.

John Gulla

Very cool.

Stephen Dann

Amazing place all music fans should visit

Barry M

Near the crossroads where Robert Johnson sold his soul to the devil for fame and fortune playing the Blues!

Chance Goodale

Awesome seeing all the old guitars and suits. Plus Muddy Waters boyhood home

David Rosazza

Glad people are preserving the history

What a fantastic place if you like the blues

a great gathering of bluesmen of the area, specially Muddy Waters. can't wait to see the new areas they are building.

Annie Burnett

Raymond Molden

Awesome place, only problem is no photography, not even without flash. Still 5/5 stars. I'll be back.

Willie O'Brien

Well worth a visit.

martine ghirart

(Translated by Google) Very interesting ... to see (Original) Très intéressant ...à voir

Donna Torres

Great staff

Tom Ring

Loved this place. Full of blue-related memorabilia and history. Very laid back and friendly - great chatting with Anthony.

Carroll Coston

Top notch

Ross Moore

A great museum that any blues lover will appreciate , great exhibits with a ton of real artifacts and historical items. ?BTW , very reasonable priced.

Heith McCracken

This place is awesome. I came to Clarksdale to visit a family member not knowing anything about the area. This museum filled me in on so much Blues history, as well as some of the local history. I would recommend this place to any person visiting, whether you like blues or not.

Michael Yokitis

Really enjoyed it, but it seemed a bit disjointed to me . . . it didn't start w/ history & context of the culture leading up to the blues, rather, the exhibits started with local bluesmen right after you entered. But it was great to see a bunch of the exhibits, esp the Muddy Waters cabin.

Lee Moore

This is my birth place & I KNOW a lots of history about the delta & that is why I love.the blues museum

Michael Tracey

Great exhibits and blues memorabilia. Well presented.

Tammy Dyess

We loved it!!

Reggie Harrington

My family enjoyed visiting the Delta Blues Museum. This is a nice place to take a day trip to. I do not recommend taking kids but great for adults.

Buster Bud

A small museum, but it has a great display of Blues music artifacts and memorabilia. It is located only about 100 feet from the Ground Zero Blues Club, so this is a good place to spend some time in the morning or afternoon while you are waiting for things to get underway at Ground Zero. This museum is definitely a must-see attraction for any Blues music afficianado, and since you most likely traveled some distance to get to Clarksdale, tàke the time to go through the Delta Blues Museum. I visited in the spring of 2019, and as I recall, admission was about 8 or 9 dollars, so very reasonable. As you might expect, they have a small gift shop in which you can find unique Blues related souvenirs.

Stan Hench

Great museum

Keith Davis

Very much worth the drive. The Malaco room was impressive, as was the (temporary, I think) Muddy Waters exhibit. And so many great places to eat and hear live music nearby!

Arin Canbolat

Really great museum. Lots of history around the blues and Clarkesdale's impact on it. It focuses by artist which is a unique perspective. They are working on a Muddy Waters exhibit which even partially completed is really great.

Shay Ellis

Beautiful exhibit, very knowledgeable staff as well. Loved it!

Gary Guthrie

As far as the span of eras and styles of Blues is concerned, this is a worthwhile stop, especially the new annex with the Muddy Waters cabin. Better aligned with the musicologist than the tagalong.

Lauren Manera

Great place. Staff nice, knowledgeable.

ECL

Great place to visit.

Joseph Lockhart

Wonderful place to visit given the enormous amounts of historical music and information about the blues..

yems611

Smaller than I thought

Debbie Fetty

This is a great museum. Learned a lot about the start of Blues and how it influenced other groups and individuals. Definitely a must see.

Matt Marshall

Beautiful museum in the heart of blues country. Love the Muddy Waters wing and Mud's old cabin + the famous Muddywood. Cool place, great gift shop.

Bill Van Rooy

Great museum.

Mark Dezuba

Must see museum when you're in Clarksdale MI. Plan on minimum of 2 hours.

John Hrynda

More blues history than you would expect

earthquakes Shannon

Star 5

Jake Hawkins

Some really interesting bits and I left with a long list of artists and albums that I will research more. As a slight negative, and similarly to a few museums I've visited recently, there isn't much overall narrative so it might be a bit hard to follow if you have no prior background knowledge.

David Nichols

Loved the experience

Crystal McDaniel

Another amazing museum! Must visit!!

Malcom Brown

Details of 61 / 49 Blues Trail

Gonzo Oznog

The author was drawned as if by inercia to see the museum, it is not only my affinity, but passion to visit. And frecuent museums in new cities i visit. Sorry i couln't access it fee is charged. $8.00 i recomend it is a must to see Meeca for funs of the Blues, unbelivable i landed in Claksdale as an Economic refugee. From West Coast, namely Californias resident: Baja California Sur, Mexico. Baja California Norte, Mexico and California USA. -trotamundos Extraordinaire- *Vago*

Libby Spears

Great historic experience

Much more in depth than I'd imagined. A definite must see for fans of Blues music.

Cotton Cee

Great information

Bernhard Frank

I love Clarksdale and the Museum

Melinda Dickerson

New exhibits in the works, nice view of history

Adam M

This place is well worth a visit. It will take you about an hour to walk around the museum. Lots of information and interesting displays, including the most prominent figures of the genre, and also tracing the Delta blues style all the way back to its roots. Gift shop had a really good selection for fair prices too.

Greg Cole

Great place to spend time learning about the Delta Blues. Nice history, nice displays. Highly recommended.

James Bridges

Good local. Blues artists history to study for future generations to come and see and experience!

Cindy Cella

It was pretty good museum not as big as we thought though.

Bert Picot

Ok ouroo okoowi Joe out to

Roy Campbell

Great insight into the birth of the blues

Ronald Flemming

Great place to learn the history of the blues

Jasper Schaap

Nice museum containing a lot of blues icons. What is currently missing is a proper story / timeline. Only the information a bout Muddy Waters provides a good amount of context. Therefore it is more of an 'art' museum. I have understood there are plans to change that in the future.
