It's almost $30 for admission and an audio stick but worth it if you're a fan (I recommend the audio stick). It's right downtown Nashville and there's easy-to-find parking around (I used the public parking garage under the park between the front of the HOF and the hotel.) Traffic on a weekday morning was very manageable. There's a cafe and a big museum store, as you might imagine.

I regret, a bit, not checking out RCA Studio B, but that's another $10 or more.

Thank George B

Went to Nashville for a visit and really had not thought about making this a stop. As we were walking, I saw that they had a Zac Brown display and decided to stop in. I was in for quite a surprise! There is a fee to enter, and depending on which tour you take, will depend on how much your ticket cost. We purchased the basic tour, which was just perfect. There was so much to see! We spent a good 2 hours there. When we were visiting, the main display was of Johnny Cash and Bob Dylan. Although I am not a huge fan of either, I found the exhibit very informative and interesting.

Loved the Zac Brown Band exhibit as well as the Brad Paisley exhibit. There is so much history here, going all the way back to the start of country music.

If you are in town, put this on your list! You will not be disappointed!!

I am not a museum fan but this was a fun experience. As a country fan it is great to learn more about artists that have impacted the industry. I now appreciate country music more and thank each artist for their dedication!

Pleasantly surprised at how modern it was - great layout and so many neat things to see. Loved all the pieces of actual memorabilia from all eras - several spots to sit and listen to songs & history.

We only had 3 days and this was one museum we wouldn't miss. We are all big country music fans of the older generation so it was wonderful to go back in time and see everything from the stars of yesterday. I thought I knew quite a bit but boy I sure learned so much more. We spent most of the day and really could have stayed longer but had a long road trip ahead of us still to drive. Everything from nudie suits, cars and shoes and guitars! A must see!
