The behind the scenes tour was a bit boring. First, if you have a problem with stairs, it's not for you. Also, if you are expecting any rock and roll or hillbilly rock and roll, you won't see it...

For anyone who has a love and appreciation of music, especially from the 1960s and and 1970s, FAME Studios is a must see even if it means traveling extraordinary miles to get there. This is the place where the sound of soul, funk, and southern rock was born. And just as amazing are the people who safeguard, preserve, and share this treasure. It’s highly recommended to spend a little more for the backstage experience. Many thanks to the wonderful staff including Rick Hall’s grandson who shared many wonderful personal memories during our tour.
We had wanted to visit here since watching the documentary about Muscle Shoals on Netflix. We travelled to Muscle Shoals from South Carolina in our RV. The tour didn't disappoint! It was exciting to be standing in the same place where so much amazing music had been recorded. Highly recommend a visit here.
