The Gertrude MA Rainey House & Blues Museum reviews
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. more »
Such a great piece of History hidden away in Columbus .. If you love History or are a Blues lover you have to stop by to visit . It’s well worth the time . There is no cost they operate on donations..... more »
Nice little museum. It reopened mid August.
Very interesting. I learned a lot about Ma Rainey and the things she overcame in her life.
