Now, I am not a Museum person, BUT I really enjoyed the (Riley) B. B. King Museum. As we were completing our visit , 50 visitors from England were coming in after us. What a treat.

HI MO, I would like to know if you hired a car to go to the museum please, as myself and my two sons over 21 intend to visit on route from Memphis, where we visited last September. I am in a dilemma as to whether to hire a car from Memphis or do you know of any public transport. Julie from the Uk.
