The B.B. King Museum is dedicated to celebrating the life and music of this iconic artist, and it is B.B.’s expressed wish that education and community outreach be at the heart of our mission. We honor him and his legacy by providing educational programs designed to offer young people the kind of hope and opportunity that was not available to Riley B. King in the Mississippi of his youth. Student group tours are also available.
