This stop is a must on your tours. The price is right and you can hear hundreds of songs while your are walking around. Take your time and enjoy the exhibits. I noticed that an additional room is being included with ZZ Top and others so look for that compleation as well.

As stated earlier you start with a movie and then given headphones to tour the museum at your own pace. I must confess that I'm not a big music history fan. My wife is and she enjoyed it more than I and both agree Sun Studio was a lot better. Yes there is a lot of history to be had but nothing was really added by being there in person to me. A positive is all the info was at one location. I would of been just as happy watching a documentary on the subject at home.

There is a free shuttle that runs between this museum and Sun Studio.

Loved this museum which spans a wide range of music. Entry signs suggest that 1 -11/2hrs needed. This is an understatement and if you choose to listen to much of the music on offer through you audio feed, 4 hours slips by very easily.

It was an inexpensive tour, about $11 each adult. It has a ton of history so plan to give yourself time to read/listen to all of the guided tours. Plan for 1-2 hours. Worth the time!
