  • Just love this little museum. The workers are very nice and very helpful. Radio Bristol also does their TV show at the museum. You can buy tickets ahead of time to go to it. And you better because they are sold out every time. You need to check this place out.
  • Nice place to visit and educate yourself if you like country music. At the beginning i didn't know they had a door inside the small area to view more things and history and i was angry or i can say disappointed but... I found it and it was just amazing. Co attraction is the live radio stations inside and you cam see them broadcasting plus they have a booth with sing along, like karaoke style. If you have kids with you they have activities for them sometimes and thats cool.
