To actually see where some of the greats started there careers is cool. A must for anyone interested in rocky roll or country music. Tour is about 1.5 hrs and tour guide made it all the more interesting
For a small place it packs a full punch. A must see if you love music history and nostalgia. Our tour guide was a young woman who was exuberant and entertaining. She made what might have been a dull visit fun and interesting.

A must see in Memphis! The history that was produced in this small studio is just astounding ! Elvis, Cash, Perkins to name a few. Sam Phillips is an American treasure and this is his place in history. A must see.
It was a thrill to be in the studio, and stand on the exact spot that Elvis stood on when he recorded for Sun Records. To hear the history of the talent that was present in that building is absolutely astounding

My visit to Sun Studio was part of a city tour. I’m not sure how the shuttle bus works but I believe it runs every hour to and from Graceland. You can view the shuttle times on SS website. My time at Sun studio was short as it is not a huge place. All you need is about an hour there.

There is but it's hard to find. There is a really narrow drive right next to the studio and there is parking behind. Also some options on the street. We cheated and parked in the Dominos parking lot across the street. :)
