Museum
“Take a trip to Soulsville in southern Memphis to visit the Stax Museum of American Soul Music. Built on the site of Stax Records, the museum offers a fun and music-filled look at the origins of Memphis soul focusing on legends like Otis Redding, Carla Thomas, and Booker T. & the M.G.'s. You can also get a close-up look at Isaac Hayes’ gold-plated, fur-lined Cadillac.”

History Museum
“The Memphis Rock n’ Soul Museum is a building dedicated to the history and legacy of Memphis musicians who pioneered and furthered the evolution of “the Memphis sound.” The museum was created through the combined efforts of The National Museum of American History and the Smithsonian Institute. Among its many displays, the museum hosts The Smithsonian’s “Rock n’ Roll: Social Crossroads” exhibit. The museum chronicles the evolution of rock and roll music as well as soul, beginning in the 1920’s and gradually moving into the current era of music. The museum also provides a collection of over 100 songs recorded in the greater Memphis area during the 1930’s and moving into the 1970’s. It also boasts an informative catalog of information containing over 300 minutes of material concerning the musicians, labels and pioneers who have operated in Memphis throughout its history. It is not the largest museum in Memphis and it is more directly oriented towards visitors who are interested in the history and evolution of Memphis music. However, it is very possibly the most informative museum in the city and visitors will leave with an enhanced understanding of music history and Memphis music’s effect upon American music and culture.”

“We can’t often see the stars in Memphis through the clouds and bright city lights. For less than $5, Sharpe Planetarium is a fun alternative.”

“The best museum, in my opinion. Jam out to the greats -- Otis, Aretha, Al and the bunch on the dance floor, take photos by the cars, and groove to the music as you get a feel for Memphis music.”

“I don't know if it's a museum, shops, or what. It's really all of those. Locals don't think much of it--but if you're an Elvis fan, it's obviously a must.”
