Tina Turner Museum

It's an absolutely fantastic tribute to Ms Turner. Costumes and memorabilia are from throughout her career. So quaint, and a must-see for any fan.

Tina Turner Museum - Delta Heritage Center

The West Tennessee Delta Heritage Center houses a number of small museum exhibits about the town, but visitors may especially be interested in the Tina Turner and Sleepy Willie Estes museums.

The Tina Turner Museum is in the one room schoolhouse where she attended grammar school. There are show costumes (including the famous Aunty Entity costume from Mad Max), old yearbooks, records, and more. Behind the displays are the preserved schoolhouse.

Immediately next door is the childhood home of blues musician Sleep Willie Estes, with some of his show posters and records on display. Additional exhibits about these and other musicians from the area can be found in the Heritage Center.
