While looking for things to do that were close to Jackson TN, we decided to check out this museum. I've always enjoyed Tina Turner's music and considered her a legendary performer. I was curious as to what this museum would have to offer and I have to say that I was impressed. This place is definitely a hidden treasure right off the interstate. It is much more than just a simple museum. There are three other sections that have some great artifacts. Also, it is free! The staff is very friendly and the place is very well kept. What a treasure and to know that the legendary Tina Turner grew up not too far from this museum. Check it out when you can, you will not be disappointed.
It's 5 museums in 1, with a gift shop, which is nice. The staff/volunteers were friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The museums may seem a bit smaller than a large city, however, for the size of the town, they were more than adequate. I just wish they would put up more signage on I-40 to let people know the museums are there. There's almost no signage as you approach.
