Owner description: Sun Studio - The place where an 18 year old Elvis Presley recorded his first song. It’s well-known in the music industry as "The Birthplace of Rock 'N' Roll" and the most famous recording studio in the world. Opened by rock pioneer Sam Phillips in 1950, this national Historic Landmark is where superstar musicians like Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and countless others started their recording careers. Today, Sun Studio still serves as a recording studio in the evenings while hosting public tours during the daytime hours.

Did this tour as part of a bus tour through town. It was great. Museum items were fascinating and the tour guide was excellent. Very knowledgeable and informative. Great music history lesson. Highly recommended. Takes about an hour.

We really enjoyed our tour. It had many vintage pieces of equipment, records, instruments, and photos. Our tour guide was entertaining and knowledgeable. One highlight is being able to take your picture with the same microphone used by many stars and standing on the very spot where Elvis recorded, “That’s Alright Mama .” It is certainly worth a visit.
