I loved the exhibit on Hank Williams, Hank Jr, and Hank III. There was a lot of family detail I didn't know about. The price was a little high for the size of the museum, but worth spending the few extra dollars to have the audio guide. I don't know that I would go multiple times to this museum, but... More

Even though I'm not what you'd call a Country Music fan, this place is full of history: Carl Perkins' Blue Suede Shoes, Elvis' gold Cadillac, Johnny Cash's black coat, the list goes on... Seriously, $US19.90 for three hours of entertainment? Why wouldn't you?

This is a world-class museum and is fascinating even if you are not a hardcore country music enthusiast. The movies are excellent and the displays are presented to provide a logical timeline and clarity to early rock and roll and country music history. When we visited there were two temporary featured exhibits (on Chet Atkins, CGP, and Hank Williams) which... More

Even if you just stand back and admire the architecture or visit the main foyer and gift shop, this Museum is quite a sight. To actually purchase a pass (very reasonable) and travel throughout the era of early Appalachia, Southern and Western beginnings of country and western music is an enjoyable experience. Excellent collections of memorabilia, listening booths, video presentations... More

It was worthwhile to tour the museum and learn about some of the famous artists that I've heard about. Ryman Auditorium was very interesting to tour and to be able to stand where gr8 artists once performed. I'm sure country music fans will spend the day, but we spent a little over an hour there on a Sunday afternoon. We... More

Liked the layout of the museum. Great mix of exhibits and music. We especially liked the film that described how country music has addressed some controversial issues of the day.

The self guided tour with handheld audio devices allows you to move at your own pace. Great history lesson. Make sure to add on the Studio B tour.
