Kentucky sure produced a whole lot of famous singers

Easy self-guided tour with lots of pictures and "costumes" on display. Not a fancy place and doesn't look like much outside but a lot of work has gone into showcasing the history... read more

Went to hear a all night gospel singing. The place is large and the seats are comfortable. There is several little shops to check out while your there. You can bring your own snacks and drinks too.

Easy self-guided tour with lots of pictures and "costumes" on display. Not a fancy place and doesn't look like much outside but a lot of work has gone into showcasing the history of how the current music developed. Our older adults loved the history. You can even record your own soundtrack in the sound booth if you wanted. Some places... More

This is a very nicely done museum. From the outside it doesn't look like much but inside it is state of the art. We spent many hours enjoying the exhibits, wonderful music and videos. We had the place to ourselves so I fear it is overlooked by many which is a shame.

Some interesting things to look at. We traveled there with my in-laws. They enjoyed looking around. (They are in their 70's). Lots of different country artists memorabilia from past and present.

This museum is continually growing. It's a self-guided tour and brings back a lot of memories. The old equipment, instruments, clothing, pictures are just a few of the things you will see. They have a gift shop that is small but nice. Great way to spend a few hours.

This was a favorite stop when we were on our road trip from MN to TN. We were not sure if we were going to be able to do this museum. When we got up at our motel, we found we had a dead battery on our car. Always fun on a trip. We got help to get it started,... More

Would never know certain musicians were from,KY. Nice exhibits, video clips, guitars and especially the rhythm demonstration near the end, staff was friendly. Nice little gift shop, Cost about $5-6. Takes under an hour.
