    Detailed but same-y
    Very detailed museum about where country music came from and the past and current stars. I loved seeing manuscripts in the artists’ handwriting and the wear of the instruments. There were a couple of cars and offices on display as they were left. The highlights were Elvis’ car and the walls of gold records. The only criticism for me was that after a while, I started noticing it was a bunch of the same stuff (clothes, instruments, manuscripts) just with different artists. It started getting boring after a while and I rushed through the more current displays. I loved the layout of the museum though and it was easy to navigate. :)

    Must-visit!
    Had been to Nashville a few times before finally visiting the Hall of Fame, and now I wish I went sooner! There’s so much fascinating history here, I was blown away. The exhibits and artifacts are very well thought out. A highlight was going into the karaoke booth!

    Amazing guitars.
    A great history of country music. We loved vintage film of the early days and all of the amazing instruments, amps, and costumes on display.

    So cool to see! Did the studio B tour with Ron and he was AMAZING! The museum itself was pretty cool to see but the studio tour was definitely the highlight!

    Country Music Hall of Fame, RCA Studio B tour, Nashville in February
    Purchased ticket for Museum and RCA studio tour. The tour was excellent (you are taken for a short journey by bus from outside the Hall of Fame), amazing being in the studio and standing on the spot where Elvis recorded. The guide (I forget her name) was a great performer, singing and dancing in between talks. The actual Hall of Fame museum was a little bit boring after that. Its big and impressive but as someone who isn't massively into country music there were only a few bits that were interesting. The best thing in there was the Smokey and The Bandit car, couldnt believe it when I saw it. RCA tour and The Bandit's car means 5/5 bubbles from me.

    Great way to learn Nashville’s music scene!
    We booked a tour to see RCA studio B and did not know at the time we also booked admission to the CMHOF. We were visiting our son (age 23) who lives in Nashville on a rainy day. We enjoyed seeing the exhibit … although it is a lot to wade theough. When we checked in my son saw Devin Malone was performing in the Ford theater for 45 min and wanted to see him (it was included in the price of admission.). He was amazing! We all enjoyed hearing about his first hand experience in the music industry right before touring the studio! What a great way to learn about the music industry in Nashville!

    Fun for All Music Fans
    We spent about 2 hours in the Country Music Hall of Fame on a Friday. I feel like I was able to learn a lot about the history of the genre, especially because I didn't know very much about it going in. I would highly recommend getting the audio handset so you can listen to the exhibits, just make sure it works before you go in! I loved the variety of exhibits and displays. I probably wouldn't visit again, but I think it's definitely worth a stop in Nashville!

    Very interesting museum, highlighting both well known and lesser known artists. Exhibits are well curated, and lots of costumes and music throughout the museum!

    Outstanding
    We stayed far longer here than we anticipated. There’s so much to see and several interesting videos which explore the history of country music. The record walls are incredible and I spent ages scanning across the rows looking at all the famous artists and songs. I loved the half of fame itself which is in a stunning part of the building. I recommend allocating half a day to your visit. It was very busy when we got there and we spent three hours there from start to finish, including a coffee break.

    A must do as well as the RCA studio B tour
    This is a must for anyone visiting Nashville the museum is so packed with lots of historic and up to date material, the interative displays are such fun so from an Elvis to a taylour swift fan there is something for every one The price is so good value for money. I would highly recommend the RCA studio B tour you get the tickets from the forya and you meet there at the time slot, your tour guide will take you there on a bus . This was amazing and is a must do.

My mother and I saw this attraction while visiting Nashville on other business. We had a good time, but we saw everything we wanted to see within 45 minutes. I'm not sure why the hop-on/hop-off tour guide told us it would take at least 2 hours to go through the exhibits. We didn't sit and watch any of the educational films, so perhaps that's why our stay was so short.

We were concerned about the high number of people who brought small children to the museum and let them run amok through the exhibits; we saw WAY too much snot being wiped onto the display cases and were nearly tripped by children who darted through the museum like it was a slalom course. We didn't see any museum employees on the floors; in other museums I've visited, employees gently remind distracted people to corral their children.

If you have a vestibular disorder, avoid the spiral staircase. The wall of gold and platinum albums, the striped carpet on the stairs, the vertical poles running on the inside of the staircase, the spiral design, and the high contrast paint scheme can combine to trigger an epic vertigo attack in susceptible people. That's when we went looking for an elevator.

Elevators were not well marked, and we weren't able to see the famous rotunda because the one elevator we were able to find sent us directly to the tour exit.

Parking is expensive($35-$41 for over 3 hours/day)so I suggest that if you are going to town. Do as much as you can in a full day to truely get your moneys worth. I wanted more history really but it was good. The Katy Musgrave's exhibit was like looking at Barbie's closet. Pretty but it was alot of clothes. No history to that so it wasn't to appealing to us. However, I think the exhibit changes from time to time. Depends what you like 🤷‍♀️ personally, I would rather go to Loretta Lynn's small Museum and all the things she collected from stars :) but overall it was good.

Very disappointing and over crowded. We were really looking forward to this museum as it seemed to be the best music related museum in town. Exhibits were very over crowded and you could barely get from exhibit to exhibit without having to wait in line. The majority of the exhibits are just clothing that has been worn on stage by random stars. Definitely not very interesting artifacts being displayed. Compared to the Musicians Hall of Fame, the Country Music Hall of Fame was nothing but a waste of money. Possibly the Studio B tour could have improved our experience, however it was sold out for the day.

We purchased our tickets for the Hall of Fame/Museum well before our trip and selected an admission time of 9:15 a.m., which is only 15 minutes after the museum opens and I'm so glad we opted to go early. By the time we finished going through it about 90 minutes later, the lobby was absolutely packed. So I highly recommend buying your tickets online ahead of time and selecting an early time.

The actual exhibits were really cool to walk through. We live pretty close to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and this was similar, if not a bit smaller, but the featured exhibits were in the same vein. It's always neat to see performers' stage costumes, instruments, song writing journals, and other memorabilia. Getting to see Elvis' gold-plated Cadillac in person was incredible! We're definitely glad we went.

My husband and I had an afternoon to kill while visitng Nashville. We decided on the Country Music Hall of Fame because it was available (other places we looked at weren't available or sold out) and it was nearby.
The building itself it really cool and and stands out in downtown Nashville. Upon going to the ticket counter, we were glad to find out it was a free day, although I'm not sure why. We were directed to the elevators and began the visit. On this day, some of the featured exhibits included an extensive display about the song writing duo of Felice and Boudleaux Bryant, Brooks & Dunn and Kacey Musgraves. Also seen at the museum were costumes from characters on Hee-Haw, personal instruments of famous musicians, gold/platinum albulms and the bronze plaques for each member of the hall of fame. It covered the early days of country music and up through contemporary artists.
Overall, it was a nicely done museum but nothing really stood out to me. I'm not sure sure it would have been worth the regular admission ($25 I think) but maybe there are other discounts/free days.

Arrogant and venal. I am a long time member of the Country Music Hall of Fame. I appreciated the educational focus of the Museum which is far from the kitsch that you might expect. However, I recently had a terrible experience that I think should be a warning for other people who might want to support the museum. On March 2, 2020 I purchased a ticket for a Graham Nash concert to be held on March 28, 2020. On March 13, 2020 I received an email from the Hall of Fame saying that the concert was cancelled due to COVID. I called twice between then and March 20, 2022 asking about the concert. Each time I was told that there was no news. On March 17, 2022, I received an email from the Hall of Fame stating that the concert was being held on March 20, 2022. That is three days notice. I was out of town and called to ask if I could give the ticket to someone else. I had purchased the ticket to be picked up at the box office with ID. I was told that I could not give the ticket to anyone else and could not get a refund on the ticket without the order number. If I showed up in person with my ID I could go to the concert, but I could not call, or fax, or email to let the box office know to give the ticket to someone else. The reason was that I had not kept an order number for two years. How does this make sense? If I could get into the concert myself with ID, why do I need an order number? And who in their right mind would expect a person to keep an order number for 2 years for a concert that had no date? Because I had faith in the Hall of Fame and believed that they would treat me fairly I am losing money and being treated like an idiot. It is an interesting educational place but it is not worth being abused. Do yourself a favor and go to places that treat you well. The Country Music Hall of Fame is not one of those places.

I have been to the CMHF before and it is a wonderful museum even if you don’t like country music. We had a great experience with the gift store staff and a lot of stuff was on sale! We really enjoyed the Studio B tour too. The CMHF did a great job with covid policies and it was nice to be there when it was less crowded.

We were attending at conference at the Omni Hotel, attached to the back end of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and felt it was a must see. We had a couple of free hours and walked over.
The people greeting us were very friendly and we got in quickly. For a Thursday afternoon, the place was really busy...and for good reason.
With exhibits scattered over 3 stories, there was tons of stuff to see, read, listen to and enjoy. It is a comprehensive, interactive museum covering the entirety of Country Music from the 1800's to today. Although we felt we got to see a good chunk of it, we could not see and enjoy all of it in just 2 hours.
Make time to see this wonderful place and really enjoy it's gifts.

Definitely worth seeing if you're a country music fan, but it just wasn't what I expected for the money. The wait was long for the elevator and the memorabilia wasn't as thought provoking or as nostalgic as we were led to believe. It was also very crowded and the space wasn't utilized extremely well.

Full disclosure...we are not huge country music fans. We chose to visit the Hall of Fame based off of recommendations from the Old Town Trolley Tour drivers unanimously stating it was a "Must See". We found this to just be an "ok" stop for us and would not recommend it for people who don't know alot about country music. Do the Ryman tour instead! It was exactly what we had hoped to find here.
