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

We had a great time on our visit the the Country Music Hall of Fame. The building itself is quite is quite unusual in its style with the windows on the front resembling black piano keys and the tiers on the rotunda represent the 78,the LP & 45 and the compact disc. The self guided tours start on level three... More

This museum wasn't terrible, it just wasn't great. To begin, it's super busy. Next, there are tons of stage costumes of famous singers but that's about it. I just feel that it was sort of void of context and pictures of singers... Even though I'm no Elvis fanatic, I feel that Elvis' Cadillac had to be the best part of... More

I wasn't particularly moved by the Country Music Hall of Fame. I feel it is a must see while in Nashville, but I wouldn't bother to go back. It seemed like it was more of a clothes exhibit for country stars. My husband and I would both be wondering why certain people's clothes would be on display. We would wonder... More

We appreciate your recent visit! We do have a system of badges throughout the museum near the artifacts belonging to those musicians who have been inducted into the Hall of Fame; perhaps with your feedback, we can reconsider the visibility of those badges. With a collection as large as we have, it is our goal to present as much of... More
