What a waste of time. It was a two large rooms in the building which when I was young was used for youth cubs. There was some information about half a dozen starts of the 1950/60s but you would have to have been ‘immersed; in the stuff then and had to have had a recent update for much of this... More

I wasn't sure what to expect from this place. I knd of thought it would be a brief pitstop en route between Memphis and Nashville. I was wrong, we were there a couple of hours. When we rang the doorbell and were welcomed by Henry I knew we'd enjoy it more than we expected. His passion for the music, the... More

Many guest suggest a video be made to preserve my Guided Tour Presentation of Rockabilly Music History so the intriguing information not be permanently lost at my death or when I become incapacitate and can no longer make this presentation. You are gracious and kind in your comments. More

This was a wonderful experience. Visiting the Hall of Fame was like visiting with an old friend and listening to great stories from 1st hand experience. Mr Henry Harrison, the owner and tour guide, made us feel that way even though we had never met him before. He's a very impressive man who has lived a remarkable life that was... More

There is a good new rockabilly/country museo maybe 200 m from this great one. The museo is called Discovery Museum of West TN address 305 East College Street. There is also... More

Started out ok, but went downhill fast. We tried so hard to like this, but as we approached the 90 minute mark we just couldn't take it any longer. The owner/tour guide talks and talks and talks. "Tour" is $10 per person and is a compilation of an older gentleman telling boastful stories about how he knows all the famous... More

Been there more than once and always enjoyed the exhibits and fine hospitality of the staff. Rockabilly is important to the music culture and it is good to have anything to educate people how and where it all began.
