Even though there are many music museums in Memphis, you should not miss this one. It has some different things that the others do not have and is easy to go through as it is so close to Beale Street.

We loved this museum. The highlight for me was being able to listen music on the juke boxes; I wasn't the only person singing and dancing! Highly recommended

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

If your into music in any way, you should visit this venue. Lots of history with costumes, period relics, and self narrated tour. Well worth the visit.

We really enjoyed this museum. It was very nicely done. Highly recommend. I wouldn't recommend buying the ticket with this admission to the Memphis Hall of Fame Museum. It was very disappointing.

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.
