Soulsville Foundation (Stax Museum of American Soul Music)

Log Number: MH-245526-OMS-20

The Stax Museum of American Soul Music will build on the recommendations of a recently completed interpretive planning process to improve the visitor experience and present a more accurate, well-rounded account of the history of Stax Records and the city of Memphis. The museum will address the content, tone, and narrative of its orientation film to create a new introduction for visitors. The project team will update didactic exhibition panels to incorporate recent developments in scholarship and better contextualize Stax Records within the history of the city for visitors of all ages. The museum will also upgrade its technical infrastructure, including its content delivery system designed to share interviews, live performances, and music to help tell the story of American soul music.
