The B.B. King Museum & Delta Interpretive Center has closed until March 30.

Indianola’s biggest tourist attraction announced Monday afternoon that due to health concerns related to the COVID-19 virus, the museum will close Tuesday March 17.

The B.B. King Museum, which opened in 2008, services over 25,000 visitors a year, many of those being travelers from other countries, particularly nations in Europe.

Recent travel restrictions from Europe have also impacted visits to the museum.
