About these ratings

The Stax Museum of American Soul Music is dedicated to preserving the musical legends that passed through Memphis. According to one Yelp.com user, "The museum is fantastic and the experience is one-of-a-kind.  This is a must see in Memphis. If you love this stuff, you'll geek for weeks."

Easily identified by the "Soulsville USA" marquee, this building was once the home of Stax Records and headlining artists like Otis Redding, Aretha Franklin and Earth, Wind & Fire. Relive the 20th century's top musical moments, including songs from some of the most popular musicians of the time, including The Beatles, Elton John and Elvis. And don't forget to stop by Isaac Hayes' Superfly Cadillac, complete with gold-plating and shag carpeting.

Sitting south of Downtown Memphis, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music operates seasonal hours. From April through October, the museum is open Monday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sundays from 1 to 5 p.m. Hours are the same from November to March but the museum is closed Mondays. General Admission is $12 for adults, $11 for seniors and students and $9 for children ages 9 to 12 (free for children 8 and under).
