Had the opportunity to spend some time visiting this excellent museum that extols the highlights and virtues of this iconic movement in the history of music. You can even do a self-recording and send it to yourself!

We stopped by the unassuming weathered white building on a trip to Mississippi. It was a delightful museum. The admission was $10 and well worth the price. The outside is made to look somewhat ramshackle. The inside however is a well appointed and carefully curated...More
