    I had no idea what I wanted to do for my birthday June 8th. I googled African American museums close to my homestate Louisiana. Stax caught my eye. The entire experience was amazing. I was emotional at times as well knowing how some of the famous passed away. I will definitely return to the Stax Musuem and the Civil Rights musuem also. C

    This is a brilliant place to visit, we just wished we had aloud more than an hour to give us time to take everything in.

    Absolutely brilliant. There was a film and then you explore at your own pace. The museum is very well laid out and full of interesting information. The commentary by Steve Cropper was very moving and as a non American it really helped to bring home the events surrounding the death of Martin Luther King on the music industry. Highly recommend this tour.
