“Right across from Gibson guitar factory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Was worth the visit, lots to see. Audio tour helped with the tour. The fella who worked there was more interested in texting than interacting with customers.

“History of Memphis Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This self guided tour was perfect for our family of varying ages. Similar to Graceland, you can listen to the narrative of the displays you are interested in. ( I listened to everything). We learned a lot about Rock, soul and country music, and the influence on the local music scene. Complimented Graceland and Sun Studios, really well.

“Nice Tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

This also had the audio self guided tour which I liked. Interesting history and I liked the jukeboxes you could put the code in and listen to your favorite songs.

“A Unique Educational Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

An interesting way to learn about the artists responsible for the great 'rock' and 'soul' music. A history lesson that takes us from the past to present day 'rock and soul'. A truly enjoyable experience! Recommended for anyone who loves music.

“Best Museum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 20, 2013

Not only does this museum take you back to the roots of soul and rock music, but some of the memorabilia is phenomenal! Also, Toni (the unofficial tour guide) makes the visit a true joy!
