“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

The Rock and Soul Museum was okay, not as good as the Stax Museum. Convenient location to Beale Street.

“It's easy to experience overload”

There is so much here you run the danger of putting yourself into overload. Another don't miss in Memphis.

“An excellent overview of the role Memphis has played in the way music has changed over the years in the US.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

After visiting Sun Studios and Graceland, this museum brought it all together. Everything is so well organized and explained that one will leave with a much better understanding and appreciation of the critical role that Memphis has played in the development of music that we have become used to hearing in this country over the past many years. There are so many recordings to listen to that one could easily spend many hours in this museum but spend as long as you need to fully appreciate its value.
