video footage, and items of memorabilia is designed to preserve and promote the legacy of American soul
music, particularly that of Stax Records.
With permanent Soul Music exhibits, like Soul Train,
to changing exhibits, like Wattstax and Blaxploitation,
the mission of the Stax Museum is to keep the memory of Stax soul music legends alive forever.

exhibits and memorabilia dedicated to other soul music artists and labels, including that of Muscle Shoals,
Motown, Atlantic, and Hi Records.
