This museum may not be very big in size, but it is well worth a visit. We were given a personal, guided tour that lasted over 2 hours and was extremely interesting and informative. Unlike many museums where you just look at exhibits, here you are encouraged to handle things like the Blue Suede Shoes of Carl Perkins and to... More

I just returned from my visit to this great Hall of Fame. Lee was our guide. I was joined by folks from both Germany and England!

This venue is a hands-on and interactive place. Where... More

Great nostalgia and so many interesting facts shared with southern hospitality. Susie, the tour guide, shared stories about Carl Perkins, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis and Paul McCartney. It was very enjoyable. Lot of memorabilia to see. Thanks, Susie!

This musuem in itself is a wonderful haven of music, legends, history and talent but the true gem of this establishment is Henry, the president and by far the most valuable item in the entire place.

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!
