This is the place to go if you love country music. The Country Music Hall of Fame is loaded with history, old video footage and audio recordings, displays, gold records, costumes and instruments. It is almost overwhelming to see tributes to so many great performers in one place. You could easily spend the day there. I took loads of pictures,... More

Amazing displays especially the audio-visual on early country music. Anyone interested in US history an d our cultural roots will find this museum amazing. Don't forget to visit the Hatch Show a Print store and press for a great insight into an amazing Nashville institution.

I'm not much of a museum person, and my typical vacation would be out in the woods, but I am a country music fan and couldn't visit Nashville without seeing the Country Music Hall of Fame. The museum bored me a little in the beginning because I wasn't familiar with many of the older artists, but I did enjoy the... More

For our family, this was somewhat of an underwhelming experience. While there are many nice cars and guitars, it all seems somewhat out of place in such a nice facility. The artifacts at the Ryman seem much more at home in their wooden surroundings, than the ones housed here in this palatial tourist attraction made of glass and steel. I... More

Purchased premium package with audio phones per another TA contributor....found those unnecessary . Third floor historic stars stuff but second floor great for t'weens and teens earning credentials by interactive modes. Surprised by size of CMHF. Park under ground garage on 5th ave. to keep car cool.

My husband and I spent a little more than four hours walking through the museum. It showcases lots of memorabilia of country music stars from the early years to present day. We also enjoyed the videos and listening stations. Watch your time so you don't get a parking ticket in the parking lot next door.
