    Great Experience and Great people
    This museum has so many instruments that my head is still processing all of the timeless pieces. The appreciation shown for session musicians is apparent immediately upon reading all of the information associated with the "places" like muscle shoals, capitol records, and Motown. On top of all this I had the great pleasure of speaking with the founders daughter who only made the experience that much better with her sweet demeanor and amazing stories. It's a real pleasure to meet people like Britt who are willing to share the amazing stories she inherited from her father (a man that went through great lengths to help preserve and memorialize timeless music history). Saying I recommend this place would be an understatement, I absolutely suggest you go at least twice to really take it all in.
    Matt, thank you for your incredible review. We are so glad you had such a wonderful experience, and look forward to seeing you next time.

    Music Museum
    A museum covering all genres mostly rock and roll with a touch of country and soul. Enjoyable way to spend the afternoon. Lots of exhibits on display from instruments and recording equipment to stage costumes.

    Very Informative tour of famous background and legendary musicians.
    I learned a lot about the backgrounds of some famous country and rock musicians. There are a lot of great displays of memorabilia and actual studio and recording instruments in the tour. It will take at least two hours to be able to get the full enjoyment.

This museum is downtown. It is worth spending a few hours to wander through. The focus is not on one genre or the faces of famous individuals but rather on the process and people behind the scenes.
There are actually interactive booths where visitors can explore producing, songwriting, mixing...
Additionally the exhibits are grouped by the city and recording studio best known for a particular genre: Motown has Detroit, Memphis was Sun Records with the start of Rock n Roll, Nashville for country, etc
Videos and artifacts abound in each section.

Don’t waste your money on the audio tour. You have to hold the device up to your ear to listen. I found it difficult to see the buttons in the dim lighting, The audio only gives you a very brief overview and does not describe what you are seeing behind the glass. I have difficulty standing for long periods and this museum has plenty of open spaces that could easily accommodate more benches.

I would really recommend this tour. It was so interesting to learn a lot of the behind the scenes of the musicians. It took a good 2 plus hours. I definitely liked the interactive part that let you play instruments and sing along. Terry was one of the employees and he was great! Answered any of our questions and gave us great recommendations for food places while we stayed in Nashville!

We were blown away by all the music history on display at the museum. The museum has a good flow for walking through the different sections, and the pieces on display were remarkable. The museum is a must see when you're visiting Nashville.

We spent about 2 hours experiencing this museum. My boyfriend is not a country fan, so I thought he would enjoy this museum more than the Country Music Hall of Fame. This venue gives you the history of many types of music and there was a lot to see and experience. Really loved the Jimi Hendrix experience. Great music playing all throughout the rooms. A great education for music buffs. It is a little overpriced but I got a great 2 for 1 deal on Groupon. Well worth checking out when you visit Nashville.

While this destination isn't probably as well known as the Country Music Hall of Fame, it's equally impressive in the amount of items and information they have. You can tour at your own pace and there are many interactive exhibits. We're glad we did this.

Wow we really enjoyed this museum and it is one I would recommend even for children as the interactive displays are excellent and will entertain them while the parents enjoy the displays. We are not musician but are music fans and found this place very interesting. I would allow 2-3 hours for a visit.

This museum is well laid out and the exhibits are very thorough, and rich with artifacts and information.
There were lots of odes to those who helped propel to the limelight the many celebrities we've come to love. Not to be missed is the Jimi Hendrix Exhibit. Best part of our tour!

Being in Nashville, my husband wanted to go to the Musicians Hall of Fame. I, on the other hand, am not really into music and thought it would be boring. Well, I was rudely mistaken! This museum has everything from old musicians to new musicians. It even has a room full of interactive equipment for visitors to try out. I had such a blast using the DJ booth and attempting to be the best DJ I could be! You can try out a studio room and practice your singing skills as well as stand on stage and try out all musical equipment. It was not crowded at all which gave everyone time to read the plaques, check old the displays, and play with the equipment. Very clean and very friendly workers all around to assist you with any questions, comments, or concerns. I highly recommend!
