I thought I was taking my kids to a place where they could see actual prints being made... it's actually just a store with lots of old and contemporary posters for various types of musical shows.

My kids spent most of the time trying to find the cat in the window and really weren't interested in anything else.

This might be a great place to find a unique music show poster that was printed in the 50s or something that looks like it was, but otherwise, I'd skip this place.

The only benefit was that it was free (but so was going to the Grand Ol' Opry store).

Very cool shop - don't miss it. Great for postcards and to get that old-time Nashville feel. Right on Broadway - can't miss it.

I have walls covered with framed art work from Hatch Show Print and a trip to Nashville is not complete without a stop to see what is new that I don't have. Besides posters there are also cards, t-shirts and other Hatch Show Print items for sale. Say hello to the store cats while you are there.

Fantastic shop on Broadway only until October. They will be moving to the Country Music Hall of Fame. But for now, the orange cat sleeps in the window, and Huey is in a cardboard box. You can pick up anything from a postcard to a $300 large work. The style is unique. Fun place to look around.

I wouldn't recommend it on the weekends, but when we went back on a Monday it was a completely different experience. It's small and can get cramped, but when there's nobody there, it's an awesome place to browse and soak up some nostalgia. Don't plan a trip around it, but if you walk by - pop in.
