Lots of fun
We had an awesome time. It was really cool getting to listen to all the music on the juke boxes at your own pace as well all the history we learned. We did the whole thing in 2.5 hours. My older teen is was done before me but went back and listened to more music while he waited for me to finish.

We decided to check this museum out and are glad we did. After watching a short film you move at your own pace with an audio tour. It was very easy to use and we learned so much.

Music everywhere

We were here on a rainy spring day. Once you put your headset on, your can get lost in the music. Besides the information about so many artists of the past in memphis, the jukeboxes in every decade gave a great review of many classics and new music for me and my teen.

Better Music and More Historic Than Expected
Jan 2021
This leads you though time from the sharecropper cabins of the southern US, through old country to proper blues on to rockabilly and up to soul. The playlist in this museum would take you a month to listen to every song. Several have ended up on my phone. It was cool to see the flow of music through time. I gained a better level of respect for Elvis and BB King and the men that they were. This place was a surprise. I did not expect to like it as much as I did, and with an audioguide, each person has a slightly different tour based on the music they choose and the displays they find interesting.

We really enjoyed the museum and learning about the history of music in Memphis! It was very interesting and love the music and displays. Staff was friendly and think the charging station for phones is a great idea because I was going to have to go back to the motel if they had not had that!

Well worth the visit

The Rock and Soul Museum captures a great period in America when the truly gifted motivated singers and performers flourished because they had fortitude and great talent. This will make any American proud to know that Americans of many different ethnicities established, early music from blues, to jazz, to rock-n-roll.
This museum teaches about the true pioneers and history of American music. It highlights the immense talent and drive that these performers possessed and who they are and where they came from. God Bless them all.

Lots of memorabilia: photos, musical instruments, juke boxes, clothing from music stars (including Army uniforms from Elvis). And tunes from old juke boxes. Very interesting and informative. And jogs the memory of bygone rock and soul eras.

We've been to Memphis many times over the years but this is the first time we went here and we enjoyed it immensely. Out was an audio tour and layed out in informative manner. Unfortunately we arrived later in the afternoon and really didn't have sufficient time to listen and read everything, because of a prior commitment. Next time we come we'll plan on staying least 2 hours.

It was a great way to end our tour, endless history of the Blues and Rock N Roll. So much to see and hear.

This seemingly new museum was missing heart for us. Nice location right in front of the FedEx Forum, but not much else positive to say besides the fact that all the staff was very kind and helpful.
