I had never heard of Hatch Show Print until I was planning our short, one-night trip to Nashville and researched Things to Do on Trip Advisor. We stayed at the Omni Hotel and this shop was attached to the hotel, right by the Country Music Hall of Fame. For years, Hatch has printed all kinds of posters on a working... More

I am always amazed by this place. It moved several month ago off Broadway into the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is in a great place now to be able to see the workers and machines work. It has a better shopping area too. This is a must see if you are in the area.

Loved seeing all the prints they have don't thru the years and being able to see the actual printing presses in back. Hatch Prints are a unique souvenir!

This really is a print shop, not really a tourist attraction but has gift shop area. Would have been interesting to see printing in progress The shop offers reprints of its famous posters, but the retail space is limited and can be very crowded with tourists. Unless you are a print buff, not that interesting.

Hatch show print was a great stop. It is free and does not take long to look through. We speed in while wondering down town. It's great to see them still using the old presses and making the posters being sold.

A wide variety of prints though maybe not as large a selection as I would have liked to see for sale. Still the Buddy Guy and BB King ones I did purchase are wonderful souvenirs of an enjoyable and educating visit. Once home I was pleasantly surprised to find a California wine called The Show which pays tribute to Hatch... More

Even though this is much smaller than the Country Music Hall of Fame and you spend much less time here I enjoyed it much, much more. And it's free! I came back at midday for the free talk and demonstration they had. It was really interesting to learn how they do the prints. I was here for a long time... More

The Hatch print area at the Country Music Hall of Fame is worth the visit. It has lots of old posters to see and you can watch them print new posters. Lots of fun to see.
