Four of us (two generations) spent several hours between the Hall of Fame and the Studio B tour, which is part of a package you can get when you buy your tickets. The "Platinum " package also comes with an audio tour which allows you to listen in to many of the exhibits with more information. It was well worth... More

We recently visited the HOF and were quite impressed with it. My parents, in their sixties, enjoyed the trip down memory lane and our kids, who are teenagers, enjoyed some of that, and enjoyed seeing their favorite artists of today. It is very well done - videos, old cars, memorabilia, etc. Recommend!

I expected more. There were a few interesting things, but overall, I wasn't too impressed. There wasn't enough on the artists.

First visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum but not new to Nashville. Based on many reviews on this site, we spent almost two hours wandering through the displays and exhibits. Could have easily spent more time. It was all very interesting, but I was impressed most about the span of coverage of the history of country... More

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is almost a requirement when visiting Nashville. The architecture of the building itself is impressive, housing expansive exhibits. We spent about 2 hours looking around and saw everything, but it would be easy to spend several hours exploring. The museum is well-thought out, covering the past and present of country music. We...

We went on a day when it was super hot outside. The museum was very cool inside. We waited in line for about 10 minutes to purchase tickets. My Mom is a huge country fan so she thoroughly enjoyed the museum. I liked it overall-I just prefer experiences like going to the Gand Ole Opry & The Bluebird Cafe. It... More

Lots of galleries with artifacts on display, some rotating exhibits, a couple theater presentations showcasing country music's impact on television and the video age - all located on the second and third floors of this building. We especially enjoyed seeing the "gold record wall" and the rotunda where each Country Music Hall of Fame member is recognized with a detailed... More

This was a extremely interesting as it takes you through the roots of country music to what it has become today. Some of the old films were awesome to look at and listen to. There were some old automobiles and lots of costumes and instruments that were used by some famous (and some not so famous) country music artists. One... More

I learned a lot of information I did not know -- thought there would be more music but still worth seeing - took about 3 hours to go thru - longer if you read everything
