Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, Nashville

4.5
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.

  • We toured the Country Music Hall of Fame today and upgraded to the RCA Studio B tour. Unreal experience. Well worth the additional fees ($165 for a family of 4). The studio and our tour guide Ron...  more »

  • I was so excited to come here. It was a must do on my vacation and I wasn't disappointed. I loved that I could do a self tour but still get the information with the handheld device. It was great. Everyone was very helpful telling us what to check out. My husband even commented on how it gave him a new appreciation for country music!!!
  • $25/Adult was a little more than I wanted to pay at first, but it was a lot of fun! I’m not even a country music fan and had a good time. Lots of cool authentic stuff from very famous musicians. The Taylor Swift learning center for kids is super cool too! Not sure if I would go back through, but it was definitely a cool experience. Probably be way cooler if knew more than 2% of the artists.
  • Loved getting to spend some significant time in the museum this time! We made a day of it. First stopping down the street at "The Diner" for breakfast. PRO TIP, get your tickets online a couple of days before, or get them at the facility the day before! PRO TIP #2... be at the Museum at 9am when it opens, to get in and knock out the 3rd floor. Then you can make the 11.30am RCA Studio B Tour (go on the weekend and see if you can get RON for the tour guide! Ron LOVES his job and does and amazing job communicating the musical and historical significance of the studio to the artist and growth of the industry!!) When you get back, grab a quick, light snack and knock out the rest of the museum. Knock out the Hatch Show Print Tour, then head off for some dinner down on Broadway. Makes for an excellent day!
  • So amazing. We did the audio tour, which is good if you want an extremely detailed account of everything. I stopped listening after the first few numbers because I could read it all on the signs. Very informative. Loved all of the archives.
  • Love it every time! As a singer songwriter in Nashville, I enjoy going here for inspiration. I always leave pumped and excited to create. The history is pretty amazing! The staff do an awesome job gathering items and facts for the exhibits.
