This is the old Carnegie Library, which was saved by the City several years ago. It is a beautiful building. Now it has a fabulous collection of memorabilia from music legends. Visiting will be a memorable experience.

Thank you. It's been a labor of love for all of us who share Carl's, Tina's, Sonny Boy's and Isaac Tigrett's story. Thanks for coming, but come back in 2019 for the additions to our collection!

While you in Jackson make sure to visit this site for a bit of history of music. As an extra take fantastic pictures inside and out. If you happened to be present during some of the expert music entertainers you will definitely enjoy!

We are adding to our live stage by year's end (2018). We were "first to rock" but we are still going strong!

This museum features local artists. There is plenty of art works to see in an unusual building. The architecture of the building is also a sight to see. Originally the city’s library.

This stop was okay. They had done a fine job with what they have to work with. As they get additional things for the museum, it will really rock. I would have had Carl Perkins music playing in the Carl Perkins room instead of the...More
