  • The docent was incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming. She accommodated us at the last minute and there are so many artifacts to digest. Admission is free which is why I gave a generous donation...

  • Cool collection of unusual items from Ma Rainey. Lots of old posters and records. The building is an actual home that Ma Rainey lived in. Not far from downtown historic district near the river.

  • Great tour. Amazing history from the info. The whole historic district is a must see but to see Ma’s piano sent chills up my spine. Unreal experience. Take the time and go see it.
  • A must see historical landmark in the heart of Columbus. Ms. Theresa, my tour guide was sweet and full of knowledge. The house is filled with the spirit of Ma Rainey and encouraged me to learn more about her legacy.
