The home of blues, soul, and rock 'n' roll, you can't go walking in Memphis without digging Bluff City's musical heritage. A brainchild of the Smithsonian Institute, the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum pays tribute to Tennesee's early pioneers of blues, rock, and soul, whose love of music overcame racial and socio-economic barriers to create new sounds the world had never dreamed of before.

The museum traces the roots of popular culture back to 1930s Memphis, from field hollers and sharecroppers to the pioneers of blues and rock who spawned decades of musical and cultural trends.

Without the blues sounds that originated in the fields around Memphis, there would be no rock or jazz music, without which, there would be no soul, funk, pop or hip hop. Memphis sent ripples around the world that became unstoppable waves of musical inspiration and evolution.

Explore the cradle of pop music and contemporary culture with a cutting-edge audio guide featuring over 5 hours of fascinating music history and 100 iconic songs to conjure a vivid picture of the cultural revolution that started right here.

It's a moving, inspiring, and essential cultural experience for anyone with a love of music or an interest in cultural history.
