About this project

     Our dream of creating a museum dedicated to the preservation of Bix Beiderbecke memorabilia became a reality recently. The dream of Bix Beiderbecke fans, for decades has been to establish in his honor and memory a museum in Davenport Iowa, his birth place in 1903. Bix Beiderbecke passed away in 1931, and throughout his life he made his mark on the Quad Cities.

     The Museum is scheduled to open the last week of July 2017. at the River Music Experience. (RME) building in down town Davenport on the river front. The annual Bix Music Festival honoring Bix will be the first week of August in Davenport.

     The Museum will exhibit Bix Memorabilia including his piano and instruments, a total collection in excess of 250,000 thousand dollars. We are in the final stages of Fund raising. We hope you can help us reach our goal in order to help us finish the process of opening this Museum.

     The Museum is a tax exempt organization 501 C (3).

     Your Contributions are welcome and appreciated.

Risks and challenges

Our current challenge is to generate enough cash flow so that the museum is established, stabilized, which will allow us to advertise, and grow the community around the museum.
