“expected more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

Expected more from this attraction. We thought it was expensive for what we saw and experienced. Lots of disks on the walls, expected to see more pictures and information. Good idea but not executed very well.

“A Must See While in Nashville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

In my opinion this is the #2 best thing to do in Nashville (Grand Ole Opry being #1). The history is absolutely fantastic and is presented in various medias; artifacts, videos, recordings, and live interaction with actual performers, If you to see it all give yourself the better part of a full day to so, especially if you intend on including the Studio 'B' tour.

“Sittin' On The Dock of The Bay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

Very cool place to kill 2+ hours. If your into music and what goes on behind the "star" and music history you will love this museum. They have have the drums that were used to record Sittin' On The Dock Of The Bay as well as lots of other instruments used on many hit songs across all genres. They take you back in time to studios and locations where music history was created. Not only can you see but you can touch lots of the items. They have a piano that Elvis played and Floyd Cramer recorded Last Date on. Go there you won't regret it.

“Behind the Music”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

This is a great collection of memorabilia with a lot of information about the music business. What most people don't realize is these artists make the sound we all associate with singers of all genres including country, rock, and motown. It's a look at the stories behind the stories with interesting insight into how the music business works behind the scenes. The videos were informative, but we wanted the video screens to be bigger. The worst part is parking, and we'd love to see a cafe on site. The cheerful staff suggested we'd be an hour on the self-guided tour, but we were there for two because there was so much to see. It's a great value and totally worth it.

“Music Lovers Dream”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Just wanted to take a minute to tell everyone about the great exhibits and staff at this gem in Nashville . Blake the manager and his team were friendly and helpful when I needed to go out twice to add more money to the parking meters outside , there was no way you can rush through this place !! The exhibits were well done , informative and they have a treasure trove of memorabilia covering some of the greatest music and musicians ever . It covers all genres and really pays tribute to the musicians who helped create the songs we love !! I would recommend going to anyone who visits Nashville ... Thanks for a wonderful experience !!
