Stax Museum of American Soul Music
The best museum, in my opinion. Jam out to the greats -- Otis, Aretha, Al and the bunch on the dance floor, take photos by the cars, and groove to the music as you get a feel for Memphis music.
Pack a lunch and stay for the day. Stax will keep you lingering for quite a while. This is pure Memphis, from Big Star to Shaft.

“Lake, dog park, horses, running trail, bike trails, great restaurant run by Elon Musk's brother”
“A faded, hand-painted sign and cornflower-blue awning greet guests of this charmingly shabby-looking BBQ joint downtown. The Cozy Corner serves Memphis barbecue classics like ribs and pulled pork sandwiches, but the restaurant truly shines when focusing on other unique offerings. Go for the barbecue cornish game hen slathered in sauce, the barbecue spaghetti and the delectable banana pudding—you won’t regret it.”
