  • Very interesting. I learned a lot about Ma Rainey and the things she overcame in her life.
  • Very interesting. Maybe some PG-13 info included. Ma Rainey was a real character. Her piano still sits there. The house has been restored to the period. Interesting stories told by the guide. It is a guided personal tour. Includes her lifestyle, music, and an insight into the life of black americans in that era. Interesting for some preteens and adults that appreciate history and blues beginnings.
