Full description
Enjoy the benefits of the Memphis Heritage Attraction Pass, which allows you to prepay for Memphis' most popular heritage attractions. Save money and time by prepurchasing everything for your Memphis stay. The attractions do not have to be visited in one day. All attractions are located within 3 blocks of each other.

Visit The National Civil Rights Museum which is steadfast in its mission to share the culture and lessons from the American Civil Rights Movement and explore how this significant era continues to shape equality and freedom globally. Established in 1991, the National Civil Rights Museum is located at the former Lorraine Motel, where civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. was assassinated on April 4, 1968. Through interactive exhibits, historic collections, dynamic speakers and special events, walk through history and learn more about a tumultuous and inspiring period of change.

At the Blues Hall of Fame Museum, learn about the performers, music, literature, and contributors to this great American art form. See famous guitars, harmonicas, and a piano that belonged to blues greats. Also on display are flashy stage costumes, original artwork, and historic photos. The interactive touch screens offer fascinating narratives, complete blues recordings, and video clips. This state of the art facility celebrates the lives and the music of each Hall of Fame individual as well as the history of the music and the literature produced through the blues timeline.

Enter the Memphis Music Hall of Fame which introduces you to the heroes of Memphis music. More than a century ago, music began pouring into Memphis, Tennessee. Discover how musicians of all races and backgrounds came together and, for the love of music, created a sound that changed the cultural complexion of the world forever. Today, the Memphis Music Hall of Fame honors many of the greatest musicians of all time, who created this city’s musical legacy.

At the Ernest Withers Gallery, learn about the man who played a key role in the Civil Rights Movement as a result of his photographic document of the Emmett Till trial. He was witness to the Montgomery Bus Boycott, Medgar Evers Funeral, the Integration of Little Rock High School, the Memphis Sanitation Workers’ Strike, and the Martin Luther King, Jr. assassination and funeral. Wither’s civil rights photographs are known for their immediacy and directness that stems from his use of a normal-focus lens.
