Who would've thought that taking a wrong turn would reveal such a treasure! Stopped to take pictures outside and much to our surprise, this nice man pulls up and tells us his name is henry and he is the president of this not so little museum. It was such a great place and henry is so passionate and has real... More

Learned a lot about local music legends from the owner, who saw it all first-hand. Loved it. Give Elivis' drum set a try while you're there.

We were a little unsure of what to expect from the initial description but decided to check it out and i'm so glad we did. What a great place this is and Henry is a legend - funny, passionate and someone with real first hand experience of some of the greats. We spent nearly two hours with Henry, talking through... More

If you can catch the owner Henry there he has some great stories about his relationship with Carl Perkins, Elvis and the rest of the Memphis and Jackson crew.

If you're in the Jackson TN area, be sure to make time to tour this museum. Henry will give you a tour of the museum and a history of Rockability that you'll never forget. It's informative and fun!

It was a holiday, but I was treated to an hour and a half of stories and a guided tour through the museum. Many videos to watch, photos, awards and some personal memorabilia. Good information on local, less well known talent. Rockabilly Festival with concerts in August would be a great time to go!

If you are in Jackson then please let Henry Harrison take you round his museum, it's great value for money. Henry is so passionate about the history of the stars and music, you will appreciate the music more following your visit and have a better understanding of the musicians. One of the best memories was playing the drums, such a... More

WE recently had the honor of a personal tour with Henry himself of the museum he has created for rock-a-billy music of which Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis and other notables were part of. Hearing personal stories of famous entertainers of this genre from them via recordings of interviews Henry made with them is also a nice touch.Allow 1-1 1/2 hr... More

Last time I visited here was 2000. Henry Harrison such a lovely man with lots of history and stories. Henry remembered my wife and I. He has accumulated more historical memorabilia since. If you find Henry there he will guide you personally through the history of Rockabilly and his history growing up during its heyday. Much of the articles on... More
