The Mississippi History Museum is connected by a corridor in the Civil Rights Museum and houses nine galleries that explore 15,000 years of the state's history. The museum and others use photos, artifacts, videos and other exhibits to explore the roots of blues, starting with the slave who brought African musical traditions to the South.

The nascent exhibition series, which later became the core of the Delta Blues Museum, began in late 1979. The museum gained national and international recognition, further enhancing its reputation as one of Mississippi's most important cultural institutions. After the discovery of the fledgling museum, it became a national topic of interest, and the Mississippi Delta Strategic Compact awarded it the Delta's Best award for outstanding contributions to Delta tourism. It also received a Mississippi Blues Trail Marker (more here) and has since been awarded the Delta Best for its outstanding contributions to the tourism delta.
The museum also has its own history, and the museum's blues trail marker was unveiled as part of the annual celebration of the Mississippi Delta as the nation's blues heritage. The Delta Blues Museum has been honored to become the first museum in the United States to feature a multi-million dollar, state-of-the-art museum building.
Two Mississippi museums are places where Mississippi residents tell their own story of our state's rich and complex history. By identifying historic sites across Mississippi with specially marked signposts, the Mississippi Freedom Blues Trails have joined forces to create the state's largest museum. The Two Mississippi Museum is a place where Mississippi history, culture and heritage collide in a celebration of the place and the people of Mississippi.
The Delta Blues Museum was founded in 1979 and is the oldest music museum in Mississippi, located at the intersection of the Mississippi River, Mississippi State University and the University of Mississippi. Fittingly, it is also the only museum of its kind in the United States dedicated to this art form. With a mission to engage Mississippi residents in the visual arts, this Mississippi Museum of Art provides a great space to immerse yourself in the arts.
