Ii enjoyed this visit but because not that enthusiastic about this type of music it did not hit the spot personally. However if you are passing visit.
Museum is sooooo great! You hear and learn about many of the greats in R&B. One great aspect is that the museum did not focus solely on Stax artists but many others...nice touch. I LOVED the walls of albums and Isaac Hayes' Caddy! Whether you are Black, White, Asian, etc., you need to visit this place!
While the fire department was resolving a fire alarm, we had to wait a half hour or so before we could enter.

Great... 更多
A museum built on the old Stax site with a recreation of the old recording studio inside and lots and lots of interesting displays and artefacts, including costumes, instruments and records.
