I've been here twice and I love how they can change exhibits as time goes by. Enjoyed all of it except the big exhibit about Bakersville. Never was a fan of Merle or Buck Owens much, but it is part of country music that is important. Lots of stuff to see here. Be prepared to take a long time.

This is called the Country Music Hall of Fame however I found it interesting although I am not a Country Music fan. It is well laid out and having the audio guide really tells the story of Country Music from its roots to present day. The hall is huge with lots of displays including the hall with the plaques of...

This fabulously designed museum is loaded with memorabilia, written information, photos, and movies from the beginning of... More

I don't know much about country music, but I really enjoyed this place. I took the audio guide, which was very educational. The experience brought back a lot of memories of long car rides with my parents through western Canada, and I learned a lot of the background of that music.

This museum has hands-on exhibits, history, and interesting information about country music and its musicians. You learn a lot and enjoy doing it, too. I'm not a country music fan, but I go to this museum several times a year. It is unique and I highly recommend a visit.

Big country music fans have to go. Allow a couple of hours at least. Neat memorabilia to look at and lots of things to bring back memories of country folk. Beautiful building. Skip the audio tour, too long winded.

I am not a big Country Music fan, but I really enjoyed this museum. There was so much to see. It was worth the price of admission. There was also an interactive section for kids.

I'm not a big country music fan (sacrilege, I know), but I recently took a group of 70 HS students to the Hall of Fame and we all had a wonderful time! The museum has been updated and there is an interactive area on the same floor as the rotunda that they especially enjoyed. You could easily set aside 2... More
