Pretty old fashion. Not very high tech. Lots of reading. However if you love music and what to learn more about the evolution of rock n roll , Sam Phillips and Stax records , this might be interesting for you. P.S. Plenty of old juke box tunes to listen to

Steeped in history and provides an extensive range of the music history and main contributors over the years telling their story and an opportunity to listen to their music on juke boxes around the venue. A good audio guide with headphones works well that is until folks start singing along and dancing as they go. Not always a good look or sound but quite amusing. The whole place is well set out with memorabilia that I hadn't seen in other museums - Such as Elvis stuff not at Graceland. Well worth a visit. Its also a good pick up and drop off point for other tours. Handy to know before you book.

Didn't know quite what to expect but when I donned those headphones I got lost in a world of my own. Listening to the songs from the jukebox transported me back in time. For Me, Quite an emotional experiance.
