B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretative Center [MS]

The B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center will take visitors back to the place where B.B. King grew up and lived the blues long before he learned to make the music that would change his life. Proposed educational, cultural, and character development programming will take the form of classes, mentoring, and interactive exhibits. In addition, the stories of the Delta, from its history to its music, social mores, race relations, literature and legends, and adversities and successes will be examined in one interpretive setting.

Please note: The museum will open Sept. 13, 2008.

The museum will offer exhibits, tours, and educational and recreational events and programs.
