  • Nice new museum. It gives a great history of country music and how it started in Bristol. The movies are high quality. The exhibits are very well done. They have mixing boards and a recording booth for fun activities. Some of the exhibits you can plug in your headphones instead of using theirs. Not a lot there but ok for an hour or two.
  • Definitely need to go if you're in Bristol. Awesome interactive history of music. My favorite part was recording your own version of one of their songs (and no one else has to hear it haha)
  • A must see if your in Bristol. Learn how it all started and so much more about Bristol and country music. Interactive and modern facility. Easy access and parking
  • The exhibits were informative and beautiful. Many opportunities to listen to and even record music!
  • Excellent presentation of exhibits with interactive displays and historical items. If you wish to learn more about the roots of country music and how it is relates to Bristol then spend a few hours viewing the facility. It will be well worth your time.
