The visit started with a short video then you proceeded on a self guided audio tour. It told the story of the history and development of the music in such an informative way it really brought it to life. Spent longer here than expected. Well...More
So probably I had already seen too many music venues, but this museum did not strike me particularly. Good thing is, it’s reasonably priced (12,50$) and I also found an online deal so I saved some more bucks.
It’s located next to FedEx forum, in...More
Love the history. Lots of historic items. Only issue I had is that I was told from TripAdvisor that electronic vouchers were accepted. Glad I brought the paper ones because they said they wouldn’t accept the electronic ones. I would of been very upset, but...More

JW.... so sorry about the digital mix-up. We do absolutely accept digital tickets and vouchers. Sorry, someone was not on their game the day you visited. Thanks for letting us know! So glad you enjoyed the Rock ‘n’ Soul exhibit!
Do you have a deeper appreciation for the subject when you walked out? That's really the ultimate criterion for a museum. This museum takes a fairly narrow topic, the contributions of Memphis to popular music, and does a great job helping visitors cultivate an appreciation...More
This is really nice, tucked away quietly under the shadow of the FedEx stadium. A well curated look at all of the music that has ever came out of Memphis and it includes what is, to me, a holy relic: Duck Dunn's original Fender bass!...More
Stopped in while wandering around Beale St killing time before dinner. This is a small museum of limited interest to people who aren’t obsessed with the history of soul music; with many displays consisting of old radio equipment, costumes from the 70’s, and (gasp) 8...More

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.
