We unfortunately couldn't take the tour due to a private event but the gift shop and employees of Hatch were amazing. There was a musician playing inside the print shop when we were there and he was amazing. I just loved the vibe of this place. This shop is worth visiting and only takes 30 minutes to an hour to...

I've always been a fan of Hatch and couldn't wait to go! We didn't do the tour, but all of the merch was great to see. They have been around for over 100 years and still make show posters, among other things. It was neat to check out their framed and unframed prints in the gallery and also see the... More

Okay, to be fair....I am very biased with this review. I LOVE HATCH SHOW PRINTS. Fantastic history and wonderful work. Artwork is great and the traditional approach is fabulous. You can purchase generic prints or also have one customized. Pricing is more than reasonable, with many prints ranging from $15-$20. I picked up a generic one for $5. Excellent piece... More

My husband and I went today and this is a most,interesting and informative tour. Really gives you a new appreciation of the old printing press they still use. You learn of the history and even get to print your own poster. Well worth the money and time.

Whether you are a collector of the Hatch prints, a history buff or just a visitor to Nashville, I would recommend a stop in at the Hatch Show Print. Its interesting to look at the history of this posters and how they are made. Its also fun to see all of the performers these prints have captured in ink.

I had been lucky enough to stop in when Hatch was located on Broadway Street. The feeling now is tourist trap. When this was located on Broadway I would stop in numerous times on my trips. Now I do not even stop in there. I love the HOF and all that goes along with it but this was just wrong... More

Interesting shop inside the country music hall of fame building. Vintage posters/signs being made. There are some items for sale. Visiting doesn't take long, but it's worth a look.

We stopped in here late one night just to see what it was all about. There was a woman sitting at a desk chatting with another woman and neither acknowledged us so I'm not sure if they worked there or not. We walked around a bit then found the gift shop which was what we really went there for. Saw... More

Just walk around the grounds, avoid the $25 entrance fee, and check out the print shop. There was a girl doing prints on a 1960s era press out front. Every one was friendly and answered questions.

The Hatch Show Print Shop is attached to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN and makes a good stop whether or not you visit the museum. It is interesting to watch the letterpress printing process in action.
