About Us

From the cotton fields, street corners and juke joints of the Mississippi Delta came a new kind of music – the blues. Considered by many to be the only truly indigenous American music, this form that has influenced musicians worldwide is deeply rooted in Delta soil. And so is the man who helped spread the blues as its foremost ambassador... Riley B.B. King.

The B.B. King Museum may be the most inspiring stop you’ll ever make. The exhibits include thousands of rare artifacts, award-winning films, computer interactives, and a story that will give your emotions a workout. Make a stop at Lucille’s Gift Shop to find the perfect gift to commemorate your visit where you’ll find everything from B.B. King guitar picks to coffee mugs.
