Delta Blues Museum


Established in 1979 by the Carnegie Public Library, this museum has an extensive collection of books, recordings, videos, and memorabilia—some of it extremely rare. Exhibits trace the blues from its origins in the cotton fields through to today, and the gift shop has hard-to-find recordings and publications.

Check to see what seminars, museum programs, or live music performances are on offer. Or, better yet, visit during the museum-sponsored Sunflower River Blues and Gospel Festival held every August. Before leaving, ask a staffer about who’s playing where in Clarksdale.
