Mo to Su from 10:00 AM to 06:00 PMJerry Lee Lewis, B.B. King, Johnny Cash - they all recorded here at Sun Studio. Founded by Sam Phillips in 1950, this studio became the heart of the Memphis sound. In 1953, an 18 year old named Elvis Presley walked into the studio and paid to record two songs. The rest is history. Today, it is still a functioning studio, and modern musicians still record here to try to acquire a little of the magic. Take a tour and see exhibits relating to the artists who recorded here, including Carl Perkins, Howlin' Wolf, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison and, of course, Elvis. Many visitors to Memphis cite this tour as the highlight of their stay.
