We felt welcome as soon as we entered the museum. They explained about the “backstage pass” in which you pay for several museums and the price is better than doing it separately. It has a 12 minutes movie that shows you the story of the...More
Well worth the money. I spent nearly 2.5 hours here. Starts with a short film maybe 10 minutes, then given a headset for a self- paced audio somewhat interactive tour able to select what you want to hear about. Also able at certain displays able...More
This museum was terrific, as could be expected from the Smithsonian Institute Affiliation. Great information, interactive, various forms of media, I really enjoyed hitting the different numbers on the placards and hearing different types of music. I will come back w/ my dad next time!
We spent at least 3 hours learning about the history of the Memphis music scene and recording world of the 1930's to the birth of Rock and beyond. Fantastic exhibits that really gave a flavor to the Music of the region. Best part? To learn...More
The story lines were well-presented and the head-sets brought the stories and music to life. We moved quickly through the rooms and a learned a great deal about a large variety of musical artists showcased in the exhibits. A very good use of our time.

It takes most guests between 1 and 1.5 hours. However, the Smithsonian-developed exhibition includes over 300 minutes of information, and almost 100 songs which lead our guests through the evolution of Memphis' rich musical history.... so some guests have spent several hours within our galleries. We hope to have you as a guest at the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum

By total access plan, I assume you are referring to Memphis' "Backstage Pass" the discount combo ticket between the city's 4 most popular music attractions. By buying a "Bacjkstage Pass," and therefore making an advance purchase of your admission ticket to Graceland, Rock 'n' Soul, Sun Studio and Stax, you save over 20% and more than $17 than if you purchased your tickets separately. Even if you are going to Graceland and only 2 of the other 3 music attractions, you still save over the regular admission prices. When a "Backstage Pass" is purchased, the customer's credit card is charged just as if they purchased any admission ticket. If you have any other questions, call Rock 'n' Soul and they will put you in touch with me (Trip Advisor doesn't lime me posting my phone number). And, trust me, those 4 attractions celebrate America's music better than any other attraction(s) in the world.
