VISITOR REVIEWS SAY IT ALL

COME WITNESS THE STORY OF A BELOVED MUSIC ICON

He started life as Riley B. King in one of America’s most impoverished places, the Mississippi Delta. He had little but the dream in his heart and a destiny that would take him around the world. Because of his international fame, music lovers from every part of the globe beg for more about the man who became B.B. King.

The B.B. King Museum and Delta Interpretive Center tells the story of King’s life, his career, and stories of the Delta—its history and music, social mores and race relations, literature and legends, adversities and successes. You’ll find it in B.B.’s hometown of Indianola, which sits squarely in the middle of the Mississippi Delta, the land that gave birth to American music.
