It doesn't look like much, but inside those walls are some of Motown's greatest memories. Well worth the drive to the industrial side of Nashville. It's closed, so you won't get to go inside. But take a picture out front and keep a piece of...More

Super disappointed. My family and I came here to take a tour after seeing the wonderful reviews on TripAdvisor. We got to United Record Pressing and started looking for a place to purchase tour tickets. I started looking on the website and it said they'd...More

This place was just so fun to visit. From the apartment upstairs where Barry Gordy kept his Mo-Town artists, to the record pressing plant itself, this is the best ten bucks you will ever spend to sight see. Go on line and make your reservations...More

This was one of the best parts of my trip to Nashville. More interesting that the COuntry Music Hall of Fame or the Johnny Cash Museum. You can see how they make vinyl record albums on an hour long tour. Tours only take place once...More

A great tour that goes over the record pressing process, history of the building and history of the business. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly, and a wealth of knowledge. Not sure if children would appreciate the history that is seeping out of this place. Although...More

By far the highlight of my sight-seeing in Nashville...lucky I found it! Not heavily advertised and they only do 1 tour a week but it is definitely worth seeking out. A little music history, a little civil rights history, a little manufacturing history, a little...More

Really interesting bit of music history- very informative and surprisingly cool. The tour guide was very informative and knowledgeable about the history of the company and music in general. He was able to describe and then show a lot of the process.

The largest vinyl record pressing plant in the world.....all squashed into a small building steeped in music history. Guided tours (ours by the lovely, witty Megan) start at 11am on a first come-first-served basis. If you like your music, don't miss this place.
