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.

  • Even if you're not big into country music, you should still go. It is a gorgeous museum that takes you through some amazing phases. My favorite exhibition so far was for the Williams family. 
  • If you love country music, you must visit this visitor-friendly museum. The Country Music Hall of Fame provides an engaging and comprehensive overview of the history of Nashville music. It's broad but...  read more »
  • We went 1 hour before the museum closed. Was only $14 a person. Normal rate is around $25. One hour was enough for us, but plan for 1.5-2 if you really want to look at each item. 
  • Awesome museum that gave us a very informative view of country music from the beginnings to the present day! Museum had a ton of cool artifacts! The rotunda that had all the hall of fame inductees was nice!
  • Great history of the music business in Nashville. It starts at the very beginning and timelines to the modern day. The flow of the museum is great. Vintage items are in every exhibit, owned by the people on display. There are also some interactive exhibits that were pretty fun. Definitely worth a visit if you are into music, especially country, or the music industry.
  • The artifacts are stunning. Even if country music isn't your thing, the artifacts are worth seeing. Items like Elvis Presley 's Cadillac limousine with a telephone and television. The costumes and shoes are fascinating as well as the instruments.
  • A nice history of country music. A must if you are a country music fan. The price of admission is a bit stiff but I can easily see it being worth it if you are a fan. If not, then it's not that interesting. There is a brief history of all the hall of famers and an area where they preserve the music. There are some cars including the car used in Smokey and the Bandit 2. Wish there were more on the present.
  • Baja sexto homemade tortillas.. great ac.. clean bathrooms... ton of music history. Dont miss it if you get to Nashville
