AOL Travel Editor’s Review

This Smithsonian-run museum traces the history of rock and soul music, from the rhythmic chants of African slaves working the cotton fields to the hip wigglin' antics of Elvis Presley. It particularly focuses on how music brought together blacks and whites in the deeply segregated Mississippi Delta. The museum's personal audio guide has more than 100 songs, so touring the exhibits is like having your own private concert. It's in the FedEx Forum, a massive sports and entertainment complex around the corner from Beale.
