The National Blues Museum officially opened it doors on Saturday April 2, filling Washington Avenue in downtown St. Louis with the rhythm and blues. The opening day festivities began with a musical procession from the Normandy High School marching band then a ribbon cutting. Throughout the day there was a rotation of live entertainment inside the Legends Room. The new 23,000 square-foot museum includes more than 16,000 square feet of highly interactive technology and artifact-driven exhibits, an exclusive 150-seat performance area, special event space and classrooms.
