For people like me, Memphis is the birthplace of music and there are several museums here that are a must on any visit. So much history to see and listen to but a small niggle is that blues should come from the heart and this...More

For me the best part was the room which allowed one to listen to all blues hall of fame awardees music. The computerised search and play system they have couples with information displayed about the artist or albums is quite worth the visit. Allot at...More

Nice place. Expected a little more artifacts and more stuff for sale. A gentleman that volunteers on Tuesdays gave me a nice little tour. He was very knowledgeable. The employee behind the counter seemed a little unpleasant. I would return when I have more time.

If you're into the blues, it's a must-see. That being said, it's a totally inter-active experience....you're not going to walk through and just see things.

You really have to do research while you are here. Lots of interactive information but you have to look it up and its limited how many can do the "research" at once. It really is more of a hall of fame versus a museum.

If you enjoy paying to look at a small hallway full of stuff with information you can learn easily online along with seeing monitors with music pretty much straight off YouTube, then sure pay to go here. Otherwise, save yourself the $10.

Not as good as the Memphis Rock and Roll museum but still worth the stop. Well done if small, good 1 hour stop!

You pay only 10$ and you discover so many unexpected informations about the roots of the now days music that you forget you are standing over 2 hours just to follow up the interactive set the museum has so successfully organised.
