Come with us on a tour of Tremé neighborhood. Tremé is rhythm and soul. It is the pulse of the city, the birthplace of great musicians and artists alike. Sitting adjacent to the French Quarter, it is where Jazz was born, and where great men rose up in defiance to demand civil rights.
This is the story of the oldest black neighborhood in the country, where Skull and Bone gangs, Mardi Gras Indians, and second line parades burst the seams of the neighborhood with music and deep rooted cultural heritage. Tremé is a national treasure and our highly educated and informed guides are ready to help you explore it.
Located in Memphis’ Soulsville area in the former Stax Records -- which had also been the old Capitol Theater and closed due to bankruptcy in 1976 -- the Stax Museum of American Soul Music is a recreation of what once was.

Today visitors can peruse over 2,000 photos, films, music clips, costumes, original instruments, artifacts, trivia games and exhibits that tell the story of Stax Records and Memphis music history. You’ll learn about Otis Redding, Isaac Hayes, Ike & Tina Turner, Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles and other soul legends.
