Feb. 21, 2021 – Memphis, Tenn. - For Shelby County residents who are tired of being shuttered indoors during one of the county's largest snowfalls are being offered, through February, $5 admissions to the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum at FedExForum or to the Memphis Music Hall of Fame Museum at Second and Beale Street. The special $5 per person admission special is only for Shelby County residents, and it good Wednesday through Sunday, February 24 - 28, 2021. Guests should bring their drivers license or something showing their Shelby Country residence. Regular Rock 'n' Soul admission is $13, and regular Memphis Music Hall of Fame admission is $8.
Both museums are open from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm, Wednesdays through Sundays. Final guests are accepted at 4:15 pm each day, in order to allow enough time to enjoy the exhibits before closing. The original exhibit of the Memphis Rock 'n' Soul Museum was researched and developed by the world-famous Smithsonian Institution, and offers a comprehensive (and educational) gateway into the Memphis music story. The Memphis Music Hall of Fame Museum opened in 2015 after the organization began inducting Memphis' iconic, world-changing musicians into the Memphis Music Hall of Fame. The museum offers unique insight and many never-before-seen artifacts from inductees ranging from Elvis Presley, Al Green, Johnny Cash, Howlin' Wolf and W.C. Handy to Justin Timberlake, Three 6 Mafia, Roy Orbison, ZZ Top, Jerry Lee Lewis and many others.
Both museums are practicing strict and safe covid protocols, including consistent cleaning, social distancing, hand sanitizer stations and more.
