The rock and soul museum was much more than I expected - there is so much content, both audio and visual, with lots of interesting and moving facts about the origins of the music and how it has developed over the years. Lots of cool...More
A brief film on arrival whet our appetite of what was to come. The cotton trade and the black workers in the fields and the music that ensued which was brilliant particularly with the lives lived at the time. How this evolved with white country...More
We saw the film and did the audio tour and it was a good way to learn about the roots of music and how different styles merged and influenced each other. I doubt that I would have gotten as much from my visit if I...More
This was the smallest of the museums we went to see. It still had a good selection of
memorabilia especially from musicians from Memphis. There was quite a lot of Elvis memorabilia which my husband and I were mostly interested in.
We attended this museum in September and really enjoyed it there. So much to see and read about. You could walk around at your own pace. I liked the juke boxes which you could select to play music from a your favourite artists.

It takes most guests between 1 and 1.5 hours. However, the Smithsonian-developed exhibition includes over 300 minutes of information, and almost 100 songs which lead our guests through the evolution of Memphis' rich musical history.... so some guests have spent several hours within our galleries. We hope to have you as a guest at the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum

By total access plan, I assume you are referring to Memphis' "Backstage Pass" the discount combo ticket between the city's 4 most popular music attractions. By buying a "Bacjkstage Pass," and therefore making an advance purchase of your admission ticket to Graceland, Rock 'n' Soul, Sun Studio and Stax, you save over 20% and more than $17 than if you purchased your tickets separately. Even if you are going to Graceland and only 2 of the other 3 music attractions, you still save over the regular admission prices. When a "Backstage Pass" is purchased, the customer's credit card is charged just as if they purchased any admission ticket. If you have any other questions, call Rock 'n' Soul and they will put you in touch with me (Trip Advisor doesn't lime me posting my phone number). And, trust me, those 4 attractions celebrate America's music better than any other attraction(s) in the world.
