The building was something to see just by itself but the exhibits were great. It was easy to get around and everything was organized by date, from the old to new so it was really easy to get to where you wanted to be or see. Beautiful exhibits and atmosphere; reasonably priced for what you get.

Best experience I've ever had. I learned so much while we visited the Country Music Hall of Fame. Unfortunately while we were there Merle Haggard passed away. It was a honor to sign the memorial they had put up for Merle and his family. Definitely would recommend to anyone and everyone that visits Nashville.

This was a trip down music history lane, a lot of very cool stuff to see. We did, however, find the lines to be just to long to stand in, and there is a lot of walking, about 2+ hrs in there.

We had a day of rain while in Nashville, so we visited the hall of fame. Very entertaining. We are not country fans, but still enjoyed it. You only really need 2-3 hours to see everything. We did not do any of the side tours.

I like country music. I also like pop, classical, jazz, etc. I'm not fanatical about any genre. Devotees of country music get giddy looking at a spangled dress once worn by Dolly Parton as I do viewing at Cooperstown a baseball glove worn by Ted Williams. We all have our passions. If you're a casual fan of country music, I... More

I wished we had more time here you could spend a half a day in here looking at all the music history but we were only able to spend a few hours. Really enjoyed the live music being performed in the round. I would suggest to get the hand held recording to get the most out of the tour.

The museum takes you on a walk through the history of music from its humble beginnings in the rural back roads when a few old men sat around with a barrel and a washboard. There is plenty of memorabilia to be seen and the settings are elegant, the lighting beautiful and you are guided along your journey through time with... More

My nephew and his wife were in town from Florida and wanted to visit a museum. I recommended the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. We just did the general admission tour. My nephew and his wife were not aware of much of the history of country music. They enjoyed learning about the early roots of country music and... More

The home of the most amazing exhibits in country music history, with changing displays over time, they bring to life the voices you otherwise know only from the radio or concerts. See the genre develop from the originals to the modern moguls with fantastic displays of instruments, personal items, costumes, and more.

Honestly, I was a little bummed when my group wanted to visit the hall of fame...county music isn't really my thing😕. My opinion totally changed after about 10 minutes inside. It's a beautiful building with great exhibits! The best part was the interactive "bus" towards the end. There is so much to touch and play with and do I had... More
