Blues Hall of Fame

Museum in Memphis

Dedicated to Blues Hall of Fame inductees, this intimate and well-done space features a rotating art gallery on the lobby level and a small but well-curated line of bluesy exhibits downstairs, the highlight of which could only be the outlandish and flamboyant tour jackets (witness Muddy Waters' impossibly retro 1982 number or Johnny Winter's multicolored suede-and-leather fringe vest). Don't miss BB King's last Lucille, which was carried along his funeral procession in 2015.
