“This should be your first stop in Nashville”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2014

The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum should be your first stop in Nashville. The tribute to Sun Records, American, Stax, Motown and more are all on display. It is a MUST!!

For Elvis fans.. The original walls of American Studio in Memphis are here. You will see the sound booth Elvis stood in front of to record Suspicious Minds, Kentucky Rain and all the songs from 1969. The instruments used on Elvis' session are here as well. It's simply.. Amazing.

I am a huge Charlie Rich fan and it was great to see pianos and photos of Charlie all thru the museum.

The staff is great and the location is easy to find with parking nearby. Stop in and get a tour

“Must See in Nashville!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2014

The Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum was the best part of our Nashville vacation. We were amazed at the number of items here that were actually used in all the famous songs that were ever recorded. We spent hours in amazement just looking at the instruments and recording devices used by on all the great songs in music history. If you are a fan of music or play music, then this is the place for you. Nicely organized, friendly staff, and value priced. This was our first visit and I will be back in the future, because they are continually adding more and expanding. Do yourself a favor and visit this museum and make sure you have plenty of time. Loved it!!

“Unique”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2014

If you know music history you'll like this place. It is kind of small but it has an impressive collection. It is a bit pricey. Their employees are super nice, and helpful. Even if you don't know music history, you could still learn a lot.

“Not worth it”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2014

We were disappointed with this museum. We didn't think that the price of admission was justified by the content and felt like we were too young to appreciate most of the displays.
