The museum transports you back in time to the beginning of music in Memphis with the cotton pickers and sharecroppers. It includes music to listen to. It brings you up to the time period of the Civil Rights Movement. It ends with a dedication to...More
We really enjoyed the Memphis Rock n Soul Museum! We spend over 3 hours pouring over all the displays and learning the history of Memphis and it's incredible music. Our favorite part were the various juke boxes throughout the museum. You're able to select any...More
This museum of Rock and Soul exceeded our expectations! We spent a solid 80 minutes. We learned about hollaring, sharecropper music, integration of Rock and Soul across racial lines. How the boundaries in Memphis were defined by the music. Exceeding well done. Smithsonian assisted exhibits...More
This is another great place to visit and take in all the history of the music from Memphis, across the Blues, Rock and Soul styles. The museum has some great displays and awesome memorabilia including the original lyrics of ‘Take me to the River’, and...More
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

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.
