Stax Museum of American Soul Music (May 2012)

This is a past post from Magen's old blog, chronicling a trip taken in May of 2012. Excuse the poor writing style. She was still figuring out her groove

Another great Memphis museum, the Stax Museum of American Soul Music chronicles not only Stax Records and their historical short run, but all other American soul music. When I say Memphis has some very well executed museums, I'm not kidding. (See the National Civil Rights Museum post here.) This was another fantastic, fun experience. I also saw this photo while in the lobby before they restored the building to it's original glory. Did they do a great job or what?

This disco ball is from the Soul Train dance floor. That's right. A dance floor.
