Much to see from clothes to awards. Thought it was overpriced (even with discount coupon). Wondered who wrote the descriptions which accompanied the items. Writer was sure to include the Dixie Chicks' fall from country stardom but included how Randy Travis is a role model for youngsters (he did have some DUI's past few years) - hmmmm. Maybe some editing... More

All about guitars and fancy clothes. The most interesting thing was the video presentation of the history of Country Music. Depends on what your interest are...

A person gets to go thru the country hall of fame on their own time you can take as little or as long as you need to see the exhibits

Enjoyed the museum. This is something I'm glad I did, but probably won't see again, because it is one of those things you only need to do once. Loved seeing video the older country music singers, snippets of shows like Hee Haw, Tennesse Ernie Fords' show.

I agree with some of the other TA reviewers in that this museum has a lot under one roof, but a lot what is to see is enclosed glass boxes with costumes and guitars. I felt a bit underwhelmed, and I don't think many country music fans age thirty and younger will appreciated the history here. It is a good... More

Despite some of the opinions, young people will like this great facility. The Miranda Lambert exhibit is interesting and includes her tweets (it is a temporary exhibit). And the new section with the Taylor Swift bus and interactive music production and career choices were overtaken by young people. The area also features exhibits from the most recent CMA winners.

An amazing collection of stories behind the music we all love, worth a visit. Make sure you block enough time. I loved even minute and each detail!

Being a country music fan I enjoyed coming to this museum. However, if I were to do it again I would suggest getting a guide to talk you through it. We had the audio but that was not totally helpful. It was crowded so it was hard to read each sign. My kids were only interested in the last section... More

I love country music. My family members aren't really fans. My family didn't really enjoy the museum and thought it was a waste of money. It didn't really live up to, say, the Rock'N'Roll Hall of Fame. I thought the museum was okay, but it is definitely over priced. It isn't all that big and it just feels like it... More
