Two unique Clarksdale museums add much to a visitor’s experience
The Delta Blues Museum is found in the old Clarksdale train station freight depot alongside the very railroad tracks that carried Delta blues and bluesmen to Chicago. There one can see a portion of the cabin where Muddy Waters lived, and the famous Muddywood Guitar made and donated to the museum by Z.Z. Top.
