This museum is incredible - I highly suggest you get the "self tour" where you pay a minimal amount and receive a microphone that directs you through the tour at your own pace, and identifies the things your eyes may not generally see! It was an amazing time, and I truly enjoyed it! When I was visiting there - I... More

This is a huge building that houses a lot more than just the museum. The tour took a lot less time because the public space seemed much smaller than the building. Still it held a lot of great things related to country music. It is worth the trip.

OK, I admit it, I am not a country fan. I am a Rock n' Roll fan but enjoy learning and going to museums. This did not disappoint me. Lots of history and many displays to absorb your CM history. Recognized a lot of singers, and music that I have heard over the years. I guess I do enjoy country... More

Took the audio guide, not worth the 5$, there is plenty of nice Infos and the audio did not add anything, in my humble opinion, greats footage of different artist and progression of country music Plan to spend at least a couple of hours Love all the little clips of shows, movies and concert Worth going

There are so many things you could do in Nashville and this should be near the top of your list. A good size since Country Music is so broad you could have a building 10 times this size to showcase the history. Good for about 2 hours of casual browsing with both permanent and traveling exhibits. Nice clean modern building... More

This is a really nice building and museum. If you like looking at memorabilia of a long line of C/W muscians/singers, this is a great place. I however, can only take so much looking at guitars, costumes, gold and platinum records before my mind goes numb. They did have an exhibit on Kenny Rogers with a video that was very... More

This will give you the complete history of country music for the last 150 years, right up to today's superstars. The fcar collection was impressive and some you have never seen unless you were on the street when they drove them

I am not a HUGE country music fan or museum fan for that matter, but the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is worth the visit. It is slightly pricey, but there are interesting artifacts, outfits, instruments and fun for all!

If you enjoy Country music, this is a must-see shrine of memorabilia donated by many favorite artists within an architectually beautiful building. If you are a fan of Elvis and other Country legengs, be sure to also sign up for the RCA Studio B tour as part of your visit (see seperate reviews for details). Plan for 1-2 hours to... More
