We throughly enjoyed our visit. It’s full of the history of southern music. You’re given an audio tour headset and the exhibits each have a number that you type in for a detailed description. They even have juke boxes with fantastic tracks to listen to....More

This is an excellent museum! We were so glad we visited it. It provides a wonderful story of the history of music in the south, with a great balance of pictures, exhibits, movies, memorabilia, etc.

What an interesting museum filled with artefacts! Before arriving, I looked on TripAdvisor to see how long a visit typically takes, it said 2-3 hours to get through everything but it only took me just over an hour. It’s a really good museum though. It...More

We visited this as we had planned to go to the Sun Studio, but as the shuttle was off we went into the Rock n Soul. Definitely the best of the music history exhibitions we have visited.

Lots of historical musical instruments and costumes. Interesting place to visit. There are different stations where you can put a headphone up to your ear and hear about certain artists.

I was not sure what to expect and I was wonderfully surprised! You could spend hours in there, listening to all the various songs from the different jukeboxes. It is very well presented and the headphones make the whole experience a delight!

Good displays for viewing for the price. Ticket discount available when buying both Rock’n’Soul and Blues Hall of Fame admission tickets.

This is a very small museum with half the interactive displays not operating correctly. Honestly your better going to the blues museum opposite the civil rights museum.
