Absolutely worth the visit, even if you are not a music history person. Fills in a little understanding of music-sound.

Great tour and interesting history. Muscle Shoals Sound Studios is home of musical greats -- I had no idea that so many famous musicians recorded here. The tour guide was the wife of one of the house band members.

Admission for adults was $10 and children $5.
