“rockin with henry”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Who would've thought that taking a wrong turn would reveal such a treasure! Stopped to take pictures outside and much to our surprise, this nice man pulls up and tells us his name is henry and he is the president of this not so little museum. It was such a great place and henry is so passionate and has real first hand experience with some of the greats.we spent only a short time there with him as he had an appointment to be somewhere , but he took the time to explain the history and how he started this little treasure. It is free to visit , they do accept donations. If you area rock a billy fan this Iis one place you dont want to miss!

“Great Little Museum”
Reviewed 14 June 2014

Learned a lot about local music legends from the owner, who saw it all first-hand. Loved it. Give Elivis' drum set a try while you're there.

“Rockin out with Henry”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

We were a little unsure of what to expect from the initial description but decided to check it out and i'm so glad we did.

What a great place this is and Henry is a legend - funny, passionate and someone with real first hand experience of some of the greats.

We spent nearly two hours with Henry, talking through the history, the artefacts he's collected, playing the drums and sharing stories.

If you have any sort of interest in Rock-A-Billy and the history behind 'the million dollar quartet' then don't miss this place - the best $10 you'll spend in the music belt.

Henry if you're reading, thanks for a great afternoon - we had a blast.

“Interesting little place.”
Reviewed 27 May 2014

If you can catch the owner Henry there he has some great stories about his relationship with Carl Perkins, Elvis and the rest of the Memphis and Jackson crew.

“Great Balls of Fire!!”
Reviewed 26 April 2014 via mobile

If you're in the Jackson TN area, be sure to make time to tour this museum. Henry will give you a tour of the museum and a history of Rockability that you'll never forget. It's informative and fun!
