  • Well worth the visit. The staff is so friendly and informative. We all learned a lot. If you like country or blue grass at all, take the time to go.
  • What a fantastic museum! The high quality interactive exhibits tell the story so well! My favorite parts of the museum: 1) the mini studio where you could rehearse the vocals from a Bristol Sessions song, then record it so you could hear your voice with the background music, 2) the timeline at the top of the stairs with 3 merged timelines of historical events, Bristol area events, and audio technology developments, and 3) the video with current artists playing Sessions songs and discussing in detail the music and techniques the musicians used to play the instruments.
