Rock and Soul Museum
Elvis, the King of Rock 'n' Roll, Stax Records, Isaac Hayes, the Staple Singers, all called Memphis home. So, the river city is a natural choice for this museum. Highlights of the museum's permanent collection include several Elvis costumes, B.B. King's guitar (affectionately called "Lucille" by the legendary bluesman) and Dick Clark's American Bandstand podium. The museum also offers special displays, such as the current "Rock 'n' Soul: Social Crossroads" exhibit on loan from the Smithsonian Institute.
