Studios are much smaller than I expected. Great to be in a place which has been the birthplace of a lot of fine music. Super guide who was enthusiastic and very knowledgable.
Our guide was so funny and informative. We loved this tour and learned so much about rock and roll history. We only wish we had toured Sun Studio BEFORE we saw Million Dollar Quartet about these four big time singers who got their starts at Sun. The tours are on the half hour and last about 45 minutes. The music... More
Everyone visiting Memphis who cares about Elvis and the birthplace of Rock and Roll must stop in at Sun Studio! We were on a shuttle from Graceland which happened to stop to pick up other visitors at Sun Studio. The folks who boarded the shuttle were so excited about this venue. We decided that we must go there the next... More
We had a great Sun Studio tour because of an AWESOME tour guide, Jayne! The Sun Studio is quite small and most of the displays are behind glass. It could have been a ho-hum tour but Jayne was able to bring life into those records, amps, and pictures with her sparkly personality. We were enthralled with her descriptions of recordings... More
I'm so glad I decided to tour Sun Studio on a whim. It's incredible to see such a slice of musical history in person. Imagine standing in the very room where icons like Elvis, Johnny Cash and Jerry Lee Lewis recorded some of their biggest hits and seeing the very equipment used by groups as diverse as Presley and U2....

Sun Studio was a great stop on our tour of Tennessee. We had a great tour guide, (Nina) who was full of knowledge and fun! And as a bonus my 89 year old Grandmother could even hear her, thanks Nina! This was one of our first stops in Tennessee and as we made our way through Memphis and onto Nashville... More
If you do some research and compare so-called Sun Studio you'll find the current tourist trap has very little in common with the original now-famous operation. Not a great café or gift shop, not a fantastic experience, and not the true story of the earliest successful "Rock and Roll" Sun recording (which was 'Rocket 88' written & performed by Ike... More
Sun Studio is one of the can't miss destinations for both Memphis and for people interested in American popular music. It's in many ways the home of rock 'n roll, and the point of origin, recording-wise, for Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash, and several legendary bluesmen. The Sun Records Museum there is small but vital, and our tour guide was a... More
Great tour, and made more so by the terrific tour guide (Jake), who was a fount of wonderful stories about Elvis, Sam Phillips, Jerry Lee and others. The enthusiasm and engagement of the team in the building was a delight. Miles better than the Stax museum!
