Expanding the Experience

Since its creation in 1979, the Delta Blues Museum has worked to preserve, interpret, and encourage a deep interest in the story of the Blues.

We are the oldest music museum in Mississippi, and we honor the culture and the musicians that shaped this deeply rooted art form.

As a public educational institution, our vision is to ‐

Encourage a deep interest in the story of the Blues and those who shape, play and preserve it
Foster a clear and a comprehensive understanding of the relationship between the Blues and other forms of American music
Provide relevant, creative educational programs, performances, exhibits and visitor experiences
Create a museum environment where ideas are shared with objectivity and respect for our diverse audiences

With this vision in mind, the Delta Blues Museum continues to expand current exhibits, create new installations and expand upon our educational programs. Your donations will enable us to continue offering programs and exhibits to feature the history of Clarksdale's Blues culture, as told by the musicians and the music they created.
