What to expect
Immerse yourself in the birth of rock and soul music at the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum, located on Beale Street. Its detailed displays feature instruments, stage costumes, artifacts and photographs. Fascinating exhibits trace a history from the rural areas of the Mississippi Delta to the bustling streets of the city, unveiling the story of Memphis and its music history in the process. An audio guide comes with your admission ticket. With more than five hours of information, including 100 songs, your self-guided tour can be as comprehensive as you like. Enhance your experience by playing hits such as ‘Coming to Memphis,’ ‘Rural Music,’ ‘Soul Music’ and ‘Social Changes.’ After the museum, stroll outside with a new appreciation for Beale Street, famous for its blues music landmarks as well as watershed moments in civil rights history. Musician icons including BB King, Muddy Waters, Memphis Minnie and Louis Armstrong played the nightclubs here from the 1920s onward, creating many of the sounds and stories that made Memphis a hotbed of musical innovation.

Nice Display
Jul 2021
It was a very nice display of the history of music in the Memphis area. The audio recording was informative and easy to listen to. It is a must do stop if you are touring Beale Street.

To-Do!!
Really nice museum! Intro video was a nice intro to your self-guided tour. There was plenty to see and I just wish we weren’t on such a time crunch seeing everything and going to our next stop. I feel like I could have spent several hours here enjoying the collection! We all enjoyed it immensely.

Great museum to spend a couple of hours learning about music!
May 2021
Excellent museum with lots of exhibits, music, and information. Ticket prices were very fair. The tour starts with a 12-minute film, and then everyone gets their own headset and audio player to go through the rest of the museum at your own pace. You could spend hours and hours here. We ended up spending about 2 hours. Located next to FedEx Forum (the basketball arena) and Beale Street. Not a large place inside, but packed with interesting information and exhibits.

Lots of fun
We had an awesome time. It was really cool getting to listen to all the music on the juke boxes at your own pace as well all the history we learned. We did the whole thing in 2.5 hours. My older teen is was done before me but went back and listened to more music while he waited for me to finish.

The Rock and Soul Museum captures a great period in America when the truly gifted motivated singers and performers flourished because they had fortitude and great talent. This will make any American proud to know that Americans of many different ethnicities established, early music from blues, to jazz, to rock-n-roll.
This museum teaches about the true pioneers and history of American music. It highlights the immense talent and drive that these performers possessed and who they are and where they came from. God Bless them all.

Great museum
Enjoyed the museum! It wasn’t too big to be overwhelming and had an intimacy to it. It wasn’t crowded so you didn’t feel rushed to get through it. The music playlists & the various music showing the changing technology of jukeboxes was especially interesting. I found some new songs to add to my personal playlist. The staff were friendly & followed social protocols. If you enjoy music & it’s historical significance to society you’ll enjoy it!

Great Exhibits and Wonderful Staff
Oct 2020
This museum does an excellent job of explaining the genesis and evolution of rock n soul. The film provides a nice overview before you are provided headsets to tour the museum on you own at your own pace. There is an incredible amount of information and memorabilia to digest and there are many recordings to enjoy. The staff was very helpful about the museum as well as other local sights and dining venues. This is a great way to spend a few hours learning about a key aspect of our culture.
