THE STAX MU­SEUM

Weekend Herald - - Review -

Once the HQ of Stax Records, the Stax Mu­seum of Amer­i­can Soul Mu­sic has over 2,000 items of mem­o­ra­bilia, in­clud­ing many of the orig­i­nal in­stru­ments that were used to record clas­sic Stax hits by the likes of Otis Red­ding, Al­bert King and Booker T. & the MGs. High­lights of the 17,000 foot2 com­plex in­clude an au­then­tic 101-year-old Mis­sis­sippi Delta church, and Isaac Hayes’ gold-trimmed Cadil­lac El Do­rado.
