The Na-->tional Blues Museum


Buck Up For The Blues

EVERY DONATION HELPS US BUILD THE NATIONAL BLUES MUSEUM

Development is currently underway to bring The National Blues Museum, a world-class cultural attraction, to Downtown St. Louis.

Legendary Blues icon Buddy Guy, Grammy Award Winners Robert Cray and Derek Trucks and renowned film and TV star John Goodman support the project.

The National Blues Museum will explore the Blues and celebrate the genre as the foundation of all modern American music. The facility will educate guests in an entertaining environment that includes high impact technology driven experiences, a 100-seat theater, artifact-driven exhibits and robust public programming.
