Stax Museum is said to be an ''accident.'' Originally the site of a small record store in a theater, it later become a major recording studio. No one saw its fame coming.

Nowadays, families with even a slight interest in music should appreciate the Stax museum, a historical walk-through of this sultry spot. Over 2,000 interactive exhibits should keep the kids busy, and artifacts and memorabilia from the heydays of Soul should entertain parents.
