Interesting to see

Interesting shop inside the country music hall of fame building. Vintage posters/signs being made. There are some items for sale. Visiting doesn't take long, but it's worth a look.

I had been lucky enough to stop in when Hatch was located on Broadway Street. The feeling now is tourist trap. When this was located on Broadway I would stop in numerous times on my trips. Now I do not even stop in there. I love the HOF and all that goes along with it but this was just wrong... More

We stopped in here late one night just to see what it was all about. There was a woman sitting at a desk chatting with another woman and neither acknowledged us so I'm not sure if they worked there or not. We walked around a bit then found the gift shop which was what we really went there for. Saw... More

Just walk around the grounds, avoid the $25 entrance fee, and check out the print shop. There was a girl doing prints on a 1960s era press out front. Every one was friendly and answered questions.

The Hatch Show Print Shop is attached to the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville, TN and makes a good stop whether or not you visit the museum. It is interesting to watch the letterpress printing process in action.

I had never heard of Hatch Show Print until I was planning our short, one-night trip to Nashville and researched Things to Do on Trip Advisor. We stayed at the Omni Hotel and this shop was attached to the hotel, right by the Country Music Hall of Fame. For years, Hatch has printed all kinds of posters on a working... More

I am always amazed by this place. It moved several month ago off Broadway into the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is in a great place now to be able to see the workers and machines work. It has a better shopping area too. This is a must see if you are in the area.

Loved seeing all the prints they have don't thru the years and being able to see the actual printing presses in back. Hatch Prints are a unique souvenir!

This really is a print shop, not really a tourist attraction but has gift shop area. Would have been interesting to see printing in progress The shop offers reprints of its famous posters, but the retail space is limited and can be very crowded with tourists. Unless you are a print buff, not that interesting.

Hatch show print was a great stop. It is free and does not take long to look through. We speed in while wondering down town. It's great to see them still using the old presses and making the posters being sold.
