A very well done museum. Would highly recommend visiting when in Nashville. I could have spent more time listening to the various artists. Special exhibits currently were Cash/Dylan, Kenny Rogers and Alan Jackson.

Not being a country music fan, I was overwhelmed with all the incredible music and history. How could I forget people like Minnie Pearl. Thoroughly enjoyed seeing everything.

We spent a relaxing and fun day walking down the memory lane of the country greats and learned some more history before our time. We have been long time country music lovers so this was a treat. One of the highlights now is the Alan Jackson display. The only thing which would have made it better is to see Alan... More

We enjoyed this museum and could have been there for days and not taken it all in as there is so much memorabilia and history of past and present country music artists. It was a great self guided tour and a must see if you go to Nashville as it is why it is called the "music city."

Country music is the heart and soul of America. This is the place to learn the history of why the music is so popular. I came without much knowledge and not knowing what to expect. I left with a smile and plan to listen to more country music when I am in my car. Also recommend buying a combined admission... More

What more can I say. Perhaps we visited at a bad time. The space is giant with a ton of potential. My husband had visited 3 years ago and thought about half of it was closed. Still, there were interesting things to see.

A thorough and informative stroll through the history of country music. I'm not a country aficionado but I did recognize a lot of the sights and sounds. A huge display on Bob Dylan's Nashville sessions was going on and i kind of burned out at that point. If you like country music or American history this is a must.

Let me start with the good news: I loved the tour of RCA's Studio "B", now part of the museum. Our tour guide was engaging, knowledgeable, and personal, bringing a very real connection with the making of records at this venerable studio. The tour included walking through the studio, listening to music recorded in the studio, and a personal historical... More
