From now until the end of 2024, visitors of GRAMMY Museum Mississippi in Cleveland can take in the museum’s newest exhibit titled “Highway 61: Traveling America’s Music Highway.”

As the name suggests, the new exhibit will explore the history of Highway 61 and its impact on American music. From Bob Dylan’s studio album named after the drag to Robert Johnson supposedly selling his soul to the devil at the crossroads in Clarksdale, Highway 61 has played a monumental role in music as we know it.

The highway, which stretches from the Canada-U.S. border in northeast Minnesota all the way down to New Orleans, also passes through the birthplaces and homes of the likes of Elvis Presley, Muddy Waters, Son House, and Charley Patton.

“Highway 61 carries indelible stories that have shaped much of music history,” Emily Havens, executive director of the museum, said. “We are so excited to welcome guests near and far to our museum to experience this first-of-its-kind exhibit.”

The exhibit, which officially opened Friday, features artifacts from artists like Muddy Waters, Ann Peebles, Dr. John, Bobby Rush, and Conway Twitty, among others. Tickets can be purchased here.
