The building itself is quite is quite unusual in its style with the windows on the front resembling black piano keys and the tiers on the rotunda represent the 78,the LP & 45 and the compact disc. The self guided tours start on level three... More

This museum wasn't terrible, it just wasn't great. To begin, it's super busy. Next, there are tons of stage costumes of famous singers but that's about it. I just feel that it was sort of void of context and pictures of singers... Even though I'm no Elvis fanatic, I feel that Elvis' Cadillac had to be the best part of... More

I wasn't particularly moved by the Country Music Hall of Fame. I feel it is a must see while in Nashville, but I wouldn't bother to go back. It seemed like it was more of a clothes exhibit for country stars. My husband and I would both be wondering why certain people's clothes would be on display. We would wonder... More

They charge WAY too much for admission! I wasn't expecting this museum to interest me since I'm not a huge country music fan. I actually found the museum much more interesting than I expected. I enjoyed looking at the many different guitars and costumes.

If there was ever a place that evoked the true history and character of Country Music, this is the place. Beginning with the original artists who started it all right up through to the current crop of new artists, the Hall of Fame touches them all. Stage costumes,, instruments, photos, cars, records, rotating exhibits, there is nothing that is missed... More

My teenage daughter and I were both disappointed with the Country Music Hall of Fame. We took the time to go through each exhibit, but even with that the exhibits fell flat. There were an abundance of costumes, and even the Miranda Lambert exhibit could have been much more interactive.
