  • Detailed museum that's surprisingly well made. They have lots of videos playing with interviews and clips that help people unfamiliar w bluegrass. The best part was a room in front with various bluegrass instruments to play: banjos, mandolin, various guitars, bass, fiddle etc. Kids and adults alike are encouraged to play and explore. They even put them toddler height for anyone to try. The guitars and banjos were not tuned properly bc obviously beginners were playing, but my brother just tuned before he played. I really enjoyed it. The upper floor is definitely smaller than the first floor.
  • Friendly staff, interesting and interactive exhibits, great gift shop. The admittance fee was reasonable and the staff were both friendly and helpful. The museum featured exhibits based on bluegrass music from its roots and influential musicians and into modern day musicians. There were videos playing music and opportunities to play the instruments yourself. The museum also hosts concerts.
