Great museum located in what was once a Carnegie library. The people there were very helpful in explaining the exhibits. If you like the beginning of rock and roll this is a great stop. more »
Now this is a great museum. Music, stories, artifacts, more stories and all in classic former Carnegie Library. It's one of the beautiful turn of the century buildings which too often are now destroyed. Luckily this one has been kept up and now designed to house a wonderful History of Music and Musicians from west TN. The Staff is wonderful. Thanks for the personal tour.
Great place to learn about Tenn musicians and their local history.
