Memphis Music Hall of Fame held its grand opening celebration and announced inductees for 2015 on Friday.

The Hall of Fame now has a physical location in Memphis--126 Second Street.

After four years of existence, the HOF now will accept visitors and teach them about the history of music in Memphis.

Seven more music legends will be inducted into the HOF on Friday night, joining legends like Elvis, Issac Hayes, B.B. King, Jerry Lee Lewis, and The Bar-Kays.

The museum is ready to open to the world.

The museum is located at right on the corner Beale Street and Second Street.

As you step through the doors, you're greeted by a red grand piano standing on the ceiling. 

The fascinating and educational exhibition features never-before-seen memorabilia, rare video of performances, interviews, interactive exhibits, and more.

"Memphis is a great music city," Jarius Davis said. "I love Memphis and its music. Anything from Elvis Presley's 'You Ain't Nothing But a Hound Dog' to Yo Gotti's 'You Disqualified.'

Many of the items you'll see here in the museum are contributions from places like Graceland, the Stax Museum, the Hard Rock Cafe, and some private collectors.

The museum is open every day from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. It costs $8 for adults and $6 for children 5-17.
