This place and the tour was amazing and incredible! You will never forget it!!! My teenagers were enthralled by Mr. Henry Harrison! He gave the tour and talked about the famous rock a billy singers he knew personally! We even played on the drums from Elvis's summer! Thank you so much Mr. Harrison!

Carl Perkins, a local star (he even had his own restaurant here, but it has since closed), is featured... you have to see his guitar! Get your picture taken with the drums played by DC Fontana, see Wanda Jackson and Elvis Presley here as well. Cough up $10 and get a tour to see videos of Johnny Cash, Wanda Jackson,... More

Old run-down building. Limited displays. Mostly old pictures and junk. Not worth your time. A lot better museums that cover the same people in Nashville.

Wow! What a neat stop. We found this by accident , just driving by as we were looking for something else. I made my husband stop because of the mural. Then he asked if I wanted to go inside. I had no idea what it was so I thought why not! And so thrilled we did. Mr. Henry Harrison was... More

Meeting Henry was one of our highlights on the road. His first-hand accounts of all the Rock'n'Roll stars and especially Carl Perkins were interesting and touching all the same. A really authentic journey through time and music

Henry is such a lovely guy and a great storyteller! We didn't know what to expect when we entered these rooms full of unique exhibits with walls full of names of visitors. It reminded me a lot of my grandpa's attic and that's exactly how it was. A treasure hunt with Henry who gave us a very personal tour with... More

I don't believe I have ever had a tour like this before. Henry was our tour guide. He had lived so much of the story he was telling, he made it all come alive. The stories of growing up in the same depression project with Johnny Cash and how many of the songs he wrote and sang were from his... More

Compared with other museums there is not so much to see, but the quality of the memorabilia and the anecdotes made the visit very special. Henry has personally known people like Carl Perkins, D J Fontana, Wanda Jackson and many other in the rockabilly world very well, and has a wealth of fascinating stories and reminiscences. Playing drums owned by... More

A stop at this museum was one of the bright spots in my trip to Tennessee. Henry Harrison is a wonderful host. His stories are so animated and interesting. Spent 90 minutes with us touring us around his precious museum. He gave us a great drum lesson and let us sign the walls. An absolute must for music fans!
