$7 seems a bit steep for this museum but the building does need some help. Mostly memorabilia from minor local blues celebrities. The photographs by a local were fantastic. I'm hoping to contact him to buy some prints.

Nice museum that covers a lot of different blues musicians. It's not very big but they do cover a lot. Some of it needs some updating of information and refreshing some of the displays. But still nice and glad we stopped in.

This small museum honors the many legendary blues men and women that have lived in the Leland area. Records, photos, posters, music and stories of these musicians abound and are well presented. A nice stop along the Trail.
