ST. LOUIS (AP) _ Construction will begin by the end of the year on the National Blues Museum in St. Louis, now that financing is in place.

Organizers say the 23,000-square-foot museum will open late next year in downtown St. Louis. It will feature exhibits, a theater, special event space and classrooms.

The museum is a nod to the historic significance of the blues in American music, celebrating the musicians who created it and those who advanced the art form.
