An 18,000-square-foot museum honoring B.B. King is scheduled to open late next year in Indianola, Mississippi. Construction begins next month.

The B.B. King Museum will be built around a cotton gin where King once worked and will showcase four phases of King’s life, from his years in the Delta to the present. The museum has raised $8 million toward its $10 million goal. For more info, go here.
