Established in 1979 and re-organized as a stand-alone museum in 1999, the Delta Blues Museum is a place "where visitors find meaning, value, and perspective by exploring the history and heritage of the unique American musical art form of the blues."
Notably, the museum houses the shack where Muddy Waters spent his youth on the Stovall Plantation.
The museum has been located in a former railroad depot since 1999. The building, constructed circa 1918, served as the passenger rail depot of the Yazoo and Mississippi Valley Railroad.
Across the street is Morgan Freeman's Ground Zero blues club.
