“A must see for visitors to Nashville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

The museum was set up by era so easy to follow along. I must admit I didn't know many of the earlier country artists, but still enjoyed learning of their history to country. They did include the new artists as well.

“Trip down memory lane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

We have visited the Hall several times. Never get tired of all there is to see. With the exhibits changing often, we've never seen the same ones. So much history and interesting items to see. Fun for the whole family!

“Don't miss the Country Music Hall of Fame”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Leave plenty of time to see the Country Music Hall of Fame because it is packed with so many interesting things to see. It will greatly increase your appreciation for the history and evolution of country music even if you are not a big fan (even though you probably will be by the time you leave Nashville!). In addition to the permanent exhibits, when we were there, there were two special exhibits on Patsy Cline and Taylor Swift that were both outstanding. Don't miss Elvis Presley's gold Cadillac; you won't believe how posh it was for its time period. While you are at the museum, get tickets for the RCA Studio B tour (where the greats recorded their hits); they even transport you to the studio and it is a great behind the scenes tour you will not want to miss.

“More than about country music!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

If you love costumes, cars and instruments, this musuem will impress you. It also tells you through costumes, records and instruments the background behind country music. Quite informative and easy to take in. You can take in everything in about 1 1/2 hours. The cafe serves up munchies and adult beverages in an open air space with a view of the green space.

“Plan 1/2 day and add on studio B! A must do!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012 via mobile

Beautifully maintained museum That is easy to navigate with the audio tour. Tremendous amount of information and artifacts of the past to enjoy. Plan for at least two and half hours plus add-on the studio B for that takes you by bus to the recording studio. Current exhibit also includes Taylor Swift's costumes from her past concert tour. A great way to see things from both the past and the present of country music. Check the special event schedule before you go. Certain days have great concerts or lectures available at no additional charge.
