The two RV Gypsies visited the Rock N Soul Museum
in Memphis
July 15, 2014

history book clipartThe Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum is a music museum located at 191 Beale Street in Memphis, Tennessee. The museum tells the critical story of the musical pioneers who overcame racial and socioeconomic obstacles to create the music that changed the cultural complexion of the world. The museum offers a comprehensive Memphis music experience beginning with the rural field hollers and porch music of the sharecroppers in the 30’s highlighting the urban influences of Beale Street in the 40s, radio, Sun Records and Sam Phillips in the 50s, the heyday of Stax, Hi Records and soul music in the 60s and 70s, the impact of the civil rights movement, and the music’s influence and inspiration that continues today. The museum’s MP3 audio guide is packed with over 300 minutes of information as well as over 100 songs recorded in and around Memphis from the 1930-70s. The Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum also features three audio-visual programs, more than 30 instruments and 40 costumes in seven galleries. Photos can be taken, but no flash or videos.
