Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum, Memphis Reviews
This museum was fun to go to if you like music. Very nice displays and information cards. We had audio tours so got to listen to a lot of old music some I knew and others I got to enjoy for the first time. Great visit.
In the Rock 'n' Soul Museum you will learn a lot about the history of these music genres. Not only these, but also the connection with country, blues and jazz. The audio tour tells you a lot about these years and explains the items in the museum. You can also listen to a lot of different music numbers and genres. You should do the audio tour otherwise this museum is not very interesting.
This is such a great museum to be able to walk through and learn all the histories wearing those headphones. I glanced at the writing and the audio was just so good. I like that they start you basically in the beginning and walk you through. I wish there was more to this place.
Great place to visit while in Memphis. So much music history in this museum. Was a great trip down memory lane.
Great self guided ( with the use of programed headphones for informed stories and music) . A wide range of all the many styles of music prominent and originated in the region. We went as a part of a bus tour of Memphis, but well worth the time.. Take time to listen to as much of the extra music of all types that are available in your headphone program.
