I was not impressed with the music Hall of Fame. It's just one room on the 2nd level with a bunch of showcases. I found the rock and soul museum much more interesting and worth my money. If you do want to check this place...More

This is right next door to Hard Rock Cafe, not very expensive to visit, and the staff were lovely. There is so much to look at here. The consoles with head phones to sit and watch/listen to the musicians and artists was a fabulous bonus....More

We visited this museum after going to the Rock N Soul Museum. This one didn't have any music and wasn't as much fun. Several exhibits of musician memorabilia and garb. Neatly done exhibits and well lit.

This is a small-ish museum co-located with the Memphis Hard Rock Cafe. My wife and I spent an hour or so looking at the various exhibits. It's not spectacular, but does have some interesting items to view.

They had some interesting displays. Nothing really special for me. The combination ticket which includes admission to the much better Rock n Soul Museum is a good value.

If you are on a tight schedule, I suggest not to prioritise this exhibition, it is very small and offers information you can find elsewhere (Sun Studio, Rock n Soul museum, Graceland, etc). Many outfits are displayed, and a little of each artist is explained....More

Not worth the entrance fee - says nothing that other venues here in Memphis have not already said and done better. Really just seems to be an add-on to the Hard Rock Cafe. If you have visited the other museums etc., you can happily give...More

Don't miss this if you grew up during the era of Rock&Roll and Soul. Fantastic. Developed by Smithsonian.

If you were wandering on Beale Street, know nothing about music and weren't planning on going to any of the many other amazing places in Memphis to learn music history, then sure wander in. Most of the displays were of obscure artists (they of course...More
