Located on Beal Street this charts the rise of Rock and Soul from its humble roots and the obstacles, both social and racial that had to be overcome to pave the way for some of the best music ever to hit the airways!
Unfortunately the museum is located on a street that is blocked off from traffic. By the time you find a parking space you lose where it is located. We walked in circles until finally giving up. Would have loved to see it.
Thank Donna C

Sorry, Donna. The Memphis Rock 'n' Soul is located on B.B. King Blvd., near the corner of Beale Street at FedExForum, Memphis' premier sports and entertainment complex.
Had a pre booked trip and well worth the visit. You get a head piece and put three digits that are displayed next to each glass case, there are really good facts and pictures, quite a few whirlitzers and you can play any of the...More
We don't give excellent often. Developed by the Smithsonian Institute! The organization is a time line of the musical pioneers who changed music forever. Rock and soul, the coming together of the "colors of music" are well presented.

Wow, I wish I had come here first because when I walked out I felt I knew the history and soul of Memphis so much more. Could have spent half a day here. Lots to see and experience, great audio headphones to walk around at...More
Cool place. There is a video in the beginning you will want to see. A lot of costumes on display. Audio-tour device so you can learn more or just listen to music.
I spent about 1 hour there. Very easy to find. Just a block...More

It takes most guests between 1 and 1.5 hours. However, the Smithsonian-developed exhibition includes over 300 minutes of information, and almost 100 songs which lead our guests through the evolution of Memphis' rich musical history.... so some guests have spent several hours within our galleries. We hope to have you as a guest at the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum

By total access plan, I assume you are referring to Memphis' "Backstage Pass" the discount combo ticket between the city's 4 most popular music attractions. By buying a "Bacjkstage Pass," and therefore making an advance purchase of your admission ticket to Graceland, Rock 'n' Soul, Sun Studio and Stax, you save over 20% and more than $17 than if you purchased your tickets separately. Even if you are going to Graceland and only 2 of the other 3 music attractions, you still save over the regular admission prices. When a "Backstage Pass" is purchased, the customer's credit card is charged just as if they purchased any admission ticket. If you have any other questions, call Rock 'n' Soul and they will put you in touch with me (Trip Advisor doesn't lime me posting my phone number). And, trust me, those 4 attractions celebrate America's music better than any other attraction(s) in the world.
