Trust me, one great museum and hall of fame to see. Last year I visited the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame, and that was great, so as this one. They really give you a great understanding and provided many great exhibits which helps illustrates the beginning of how country music evolved and its deep roots. In addition to that,... More

Learned so much. Loved being able to leave for lunch and come back. Audio tour and tour of RCA Studio B well worth the fare. Amazing archive and respect to all who have contributed to what Country music is today.

There is so much stuff in here that you need several hours at least to try and see it all. My sons a bass player so he was interested in all the bass stuff and my husband really enjoyed the Bob Dylan (?temporary) exhibit which was excellent.

Well worth the visit, and on Saturdays you are treated to artists performing live in the small theatre.

The whole tour will take a few hours. Make sure you plan accordingly since you can add on the short tour off-site to RCA studios. The tour takes you through all the decades and history of country music There's a lot to see, and part of the tour has an audio component. At two points you can sit and watch... More

I'm not crazy about country music but this museum was very interesting and informative. I really liked Elvis's gold car, Trisha Yearwood's wedding dress, Taylor Swift's tour outfits and the Luke Bryan exhibit. The Johnny Cash shoes were cool too. So much interesting little facts about the history of country music. Great way to spend 2-3 hours. Wish we had... More

Very easy to navigate--tons of history. Well laid out. But should be twice as big as there is so much to tell.

This is a great museum featuring the country's best musicians. It is packed with information on each artist. There have been changes since my last visit there with the gift shop. The change is very good. It now has other shops and food venues in it.

Admittedly I am not a country music fan. But when in Nashville you learn to at least like it. We wandered into the Hall of Fame, not knowing what to expect. It was fantastic! Not too big so we were able to explore everything in an afternoon. Definitely do the audio tour and RCA Studio B tour- well worth the... More
