Theo's Rock 'n' Blues Museum

Theo is still going strong! What a wealth of memorabilia! And Theo describes so well how Blues fed into he creation of Rock & Roll. Well worth the admittance cost.

Theo's Rock & Blues Museum

Rock n roll museum [Blues added later]-- great collection of memorabilia, gift shop, and the best part is the owner. Theo (pronounced tay-oh) is from the Netherlands (ask him if that is in Sweden for a laugh); he recently moved this museum from its original home in the Netherlands.

Feeling lonely, no one to talk to, go see Theo -- he will talk for hours on end -- good luck getting a word in. He is full of happiness and energy and I could listen to him talk all day. Music memorabilia is not my thing, but he made it an interesting and fun experience, and people who know about that stuff say the collection is top notch.
