A wonderful compilation of the history of country music, as well as today's artists. Very well done! My only suggestion is that more exhibits are about early country music. Maybe I missed it, but I did not see anything about Mother Maybelle or the Carter Family. They do have Elvis' gold leaf piano and gold trimmed Cadillac!

A must see for music lovers. Get tickets online to avoid waiting in line there. Allow at least an hour to see all. Went right when they opened and was happy I did. When we finished 1.5 hours later there was a very long line to enter.

We showed up a little before 4pm on a Saturday. They close at 5 (should be open a little longer on weekends). The museum was 1st class, historical displays from current musicians, to greats like Elvis, Cash, Jackson, and Dolly. I would alot a minimum of 1 hour to get through the tour, but it can be done!

The best part of the visit was the trip to Studio B. Guide Ron was so enthusiastic and knowledgable he really brought the studio to life!! The rest is interesting and I was surprised how many performers / songs I knew of. The Kenny Rogers special exhibit was also interesting. Definitely worth a visit.

My sister and I went to the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. It is a very fun museum. My sister, who is a pop fan admits she enjoyed the museum.

Slipped away to do the tourist thing. They recommend two hours, but I spent about an hour. So many costumes and displays to see. I was struck by the sizes of the costumes and footwear. Some of the entertainers were bigger or smaller than they appear on TV. Loved the vintage cars and instruments.

If you are a C/W fan go here. Allow 2 hours on your personal trip as tours don't allow enough time -up to you if you want to rush through in 30 mins, maybe go back on your own later.

If you like country and you are in Nashville, this is a must visit. but even non country fans will still find the story of the development of country music and it's myriad forms interesting There is a good range of exhibits and they change them regularly as I've been a couple of times in recent years and it's still...
