Was going to Nashville for a conference and flew in a day early to see some of the sights. First time to Tennessee, and I do like Country music so of course had to go to the Grand Ole Opry and the Country Music Hall of Fame. I wish there had been more on some of the early stars. The... More

The museum is very well done and we completely enjoyed ourselves. Plan for a couple of hours so you do not feel rushed.

Went to the Museum three years ago and it had really changed. More things were added to this great place. Took us over three hours to see all the displays. A place everyone needs to see when in the city.

So full of the history of the country music world and memorabilia of many stars including two cars, one being the gold cadillac belonging to Elvis. Walls covered with gold, platinum, and silver discs.

Great museum, lots to see! Even on a weekend it was spacious enough to not feel cramped. Exceptional flow of exhibits. Great for the whole family. Plan a few hours to see everything.

We ended up at this attraction about an hour before closing and received a substantial discount on the ticket price. I would have been very unhappy to have spent the full price of admission. There is so something about this museum that is missing. The displays consist largely of clothing and costumes and guitars. It was a bit repetitive. There... More

This was a great museum. We didn't plan on going but decided last minute to go and glad we did.It is huge and takes quite a bit of time to go through, it took us almost 3 hours. I would recomend getting the audio as it was quite informative and you get so much more out of the museum for... More

This is the home of Country Music History. Had not visited since it had moved Downtown and what a change. It has been done right. Convenient, well organized, run by nice people with great museum shops. Plan at least 4 hours. There are many classic videos and interviews to see. The entire Downtown of Nashville has been transformed into a... More
