Special and permanent exhibits span an array of significant epochs, from the time of slavery to the Civil War era and Reconstruction, to the rise of Jim Crow laws that declared “separate but equal” conditions. The exhibits also showcase pivotal events of the 20th century Civil Rights Movement, such as the student sit-ins of 1960, the Montgomery Bus Boycott of 1955 – 1956 and momentous speeches by Martin Luther King, Jr.

I like to recommend Rock ‘n’ Soul as a first-stop on your Memphis music pilgrimage. Not only does it give you a dynamic primer on the genres of Memphis music (ranging from jug bands and jazz orchestras to blues, rock, soul, power pop and rap, in case you didn’t know the extent of it), the museum explores how the styles are connected—and how they connect to local and national narratives. What does that look like in moments? Moving film commentary from Memphis performers about the city’s music scene and the civil rights movement. Artifacts such as a cotton scale that paint a picture of the hardscrabble rural life that found an outlet in work songs, hymns, ballads and the city of Memphis.
