Plan a Visit to the Rock 'n' Soul Museum
The Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum is in downtown Memphis, TN at the corner of historic Beale Street, one of the most musically significant streets in the world, and B.B. King Avenue (which is actually an extension of the legendary Highway 61, also known as “The Blues Highway”). The museum is located on the plaza of FedExForum, Memphis’ premier sports and entertainment complex, and home to blockbuster concerts and the NBA Memphis Grizzlies.

Celebrating the 901
Tuesdays offer free admission to Shelby County residents!
Rock 'n' Soul offers an exciting perspective to Shelby County residents in regards to the huge musical impact their community had on the entire world. Our exhibit builds city pride, encourages our youth to dream big (just like Isaac Hayes, Elvis Presley or Justin Timberlake did) ... plus, it's a lot of fun. Yep, you must bring your drivers license or photo ID verifying your 901 residency. Up to four residents per visit, and youth must be accompanied by a guardian. To control museum capacities and maintain social distancing, our "Shelby County Tuesdays" are for individuals and families, and are not for groups (day cares, summer camps, scout troops), though we do have reduced admission "group rates" for those crowds. Any questions, call in advance at (901) 205-2530.
