Skip the cheesy tshirts and come home with a piece of Nashville art history... Even if the posters aren't "original", they are unique to Nashville. The new store and tours across from the gallery are far more elegant than the old storefront in the district, but still worth seeing!!

Our group absolutely loved our time at Hatch Show Print. We took the tour which i recommend but know you are not actually going to walk around the shop, but rather stand in corner of the shop and be told about things in the shop. After that you will go to the classroom and get more history of the company... More

I had been to hatch when they were on Broadway and loved it! This new location is beautiful. We took a tour and learned so much. Then we got to make our own poster! Learned so much from Bob on the tour! Great tour, go see and shop!

When you wander around Nashville, you'll notice an abundance of very well designed posters for restaurants, bands, attractions, etc. Chances are, they came from or were inspired by Hatch Show Print. Their location is easy to get to, located in the same building as the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. On display they have some great retro posters... More

If you like old stamp paintwork then this is the place. It was fun to see this old art at work. Unique art employees are helpful and informative. Artwork has good price point.

Our visit to Hatch Show Print was a bit of an after thought but we're so glad we made the effort. Great to see such amazing pieces of modern day art first had and to hear about the history of this amazing institution. And we got to print out own poster. As I said were so glad we didn't miss...

We visited after exploring the Country Music Hall of Fame. My son was intrigued by the woman making prints right in front of the store. She chatted with him for quite some time and explained what she was doing. There are many prints offered for sale along with other items that showcase their distinctive style. The last time we visited... More

Was expecting to return to the original location, however, it had moved to the Country Music Hall o Fame. Lacking the character and historic charm of the spot on Broadway. Seemed too polished now, like a store in a shopping mall, and was also too far from the original activity of the old "row."

At $15 this is one of the best tour deals in Nashville. Families and kids will enjoy this. Our tour lasted slightly over 1 hour. Hatch Show Prints, located inside the Country Music Hall of Fame, while small in work space seems to be almost as big of a part of Nashville's history as country music itself. Their main business...
