Goodness Gracious!

A very entertaining and educational trip through Rock and Roll history. The Rock 'N' Soul museum starts in the fields of the share croppers and takes you on a voyage that includes Sun Records, Stax Records, Elvis Presley, Isaac Hayes, The Carter Family, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Robert Johnson, Otis Redding and many, many more. An audio headset is included and gives plenty of additional information and music to listen to as you move along.

Go again and again and again and again

Fell in love with this museum the second we stepped in the building. There is an audio tour included in the ticket which allows you to control the speed and content of your tour. The tour started with a movie that gave an overview of the begginnings of soul music and how that lead into Rock. The exhibits were informative and talked about not only the music, but what was happening in the world and the time and how the music was effected by that. The music samplings were diverse and helped accent the exhibits. Plus the selections in the jukebox exhibits were a lot of fun!
