This is the first Grammy museum outside the mother ship of Los Angeles, and the Grammy folks couldn't have picked a more appropriate location. It's Delta blues-centered but far from exclusively so, and music fans of every variety will find something to their liking here. Loved the John Lee Hooker exhibit, especially the opportunity to sing "Boom Boom" along with him. The museum is modern, well-appointed and very interactive. And the intro movie is not to be missed -- the variety of stars and genres will thrill any music enthusiast. Absolutely worth the trip.

This was fun, certainly an adventure to find, full of locals AND visitors. The owner who told us his name was "Po Monkey" performed humorous skits. He was keeping an eye on everything all the while, making sure all felt welcome. I only wish there was live blues music.

My husband and I had a wonderful night listening to Gladys Knight and her band. She put on an excellent show and she has not lost one ounce of showmanship or strength of voice! The Performance Center always does an excellent job of putting on...MoreVicki, we are so glad to hear you not only enjoyed the concert, but also the building and grounds. We appreciate your attending performances, and hope to see you again soon!

Dockery Farms

Dockery Farms is said to be where the blues were born. Home to famous Mississippi Delta Bluesman, Charley Patton, Dockery Farms was a farming plantation with its own currency, school, churches, gas station and much more. Famous bluesmen Robert Johnson, Henry Sloan, Son House and Howlin' Wolf all played at the legendary plantation.

Perfect little stop off the side of the highway on the way to Cleveland. Several old buildings that show the old farm. The best part is that you can push a button that plays old blues music. It's cool to hear the music and walk around the buildings.

Martin & Sue King Railroad Museum

Reviewed By ArnieDonna - San Francisco, CA

It's not far from the Grammy Museum if you're in Cleveland, MS, and it's worth at least a half hour if not more. Remarkable O-gauge layout of enormous proportions and detail, with one or two train operators who are happy to chat about it. No fee, just donations.
