Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Nashville

4.5
#1 of 120 in Museums in Tennessee
Established in 1961 to preserve the history and traditions of country music, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum features rotating exhibits and frequent live performances by some of the genre's top artists. The museum holds a collection of video clips and recorded music, put together to illustrate the story of country music as it evolved over the years. Just seeing the exterior of the keyboard-shaped building in the heart of the city may rank high on your itinerary, but don't miss a chance to spend a little time exploring the museum's oral history exhibits, containing over 600 interviews with songwriters, producers, and performers. The museum also features an on-site gift shop and restaurant.

  • So much to see and the tour was really good. First time we were here we did the self-guided tour. You can go your own pace and stop and rest any time. We also took the Studio B tour this time. You really leave with a new outlook on Country Music. Very informative tour and worth the money. You can't possibly see everything of interest in Nashville in one trip. But this is one stop you don't want to miss.
  • If you love music, especially country music, this place is awesome. There were so many neat things to see whether it was outfits, cars, or the highlighted exhibits. You learn a lot too while you go through. I really enjoyed my time here. I did the Studio B combo with this. It was worth every penny. There is so much to see here, you can spend a whole afternoon there so make sure you have time, and take your time. You don't want to miss out on any of the super cool stuff.
  • I really enjoyed our Studio B tour (being an Elvis fan, it was pretty cool to stand in the studio where he recorded many of his greatest hits). The museum was awesome as well, a must-see for all country music fans. If you don't like country music or history however, this isn't the place for you. I also wouldn't recommend it as a "family" outing with the kids, but that's just my opinion. It took us a little over 2 hours at least to go through the whole thing, and we didn't even read/see all of what they had. Worth the price for sure. You get your money's worth
  • Awesome museum! It was great to see the timeline of our country began and what it’s become today. They do regularly change exhibits so you can visit several times a year. How about the fun and would enjoy going back again later on in the year.
  • Really great spot to see where Country music started it all with many different artifacts ranging from historic to contemporary. It is extensive in its collection and filled with tons of small hidden gems. The audio guide is free and a great way to get more details on some artifacts. The wall of records that have made gold or platinum is also a highlight. Overall you can't go wrong if you enjoy history or music.
