The Bix Beiderbecke Museum is in the lower level, fondly referred to as the “Root Cellar”, of the Redstone building located at 2nd and Main Street in downtown Davenport, Iowa. This building is also home to the River Music Experience. The new Bix Beiderbecke Museum is open Monday to Friday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Regular admission is $5 adults, $4 seniors, and $3 students (12-18 years). For more information, visit www.bixmuseum.org
The new museum honors the life and music of the Bix Beiderbecke and features many original artifacts related to Beiderbecke and his colleagues, as well as a life-size figure of the cornetist in a recreation of the bandstand at Hudson Lake, Indiana. Bix spent the summer there in 1926 playing with the Goldkette Orchestra.
