Such a presonal look at the history of music, particularly the period when music was at its best. Unlike today's social media, the photos and clippings made itt seem so much more personal and real.

This was a very interesting museum if a little over stuffed. The museum is basically chronological history of blues and affect it has had on a Rock. The story is done thru posters and record albums.

After visiting the large, polished Delta Blues Museum, we thought we'd skip this one, but so glad that the woman at Hambone Art Gallery urged us to stop in. It is indeed one man's collection - but what a collection! If you love the Blues...More

I happened to have an hour to kill in Clarksdale and I stumbled across the R&R Blues Museum. It was great. Tons of history and sensory overload. One thing- don't take ANY video or pictures. They don't like that too much, and that's fine. I...More
