    Great Museum
    The museum was well worth the cost, we enjoyed going through, lots to see and lots of information. If your a Chris Stapleton fan, they have quite alot on him. They even have the car from Smokey & the bandit. There are videos all throughout the museum that you can watch. We would recommend going, you won't be disappointed.

    Eclectic Mix
    We liked the variety of exhibits. With kids the interactive things were a hit- designing album covers and outfits. The admission price is a bit high for families. We parked at the Music City Center ramp nearby which was convenient.

    Must See In Nashville
    I went during the weekend Taylor Swift was in town, so the lines to see her artifacts were unusually long, but I doubt that could have been avoided since many people went straight to those sections and didn't spread out and look at other things. The volunteers were very helpful and informative. The Eras pop-up volunteers are very kind and seemed to have the whole thing down to a good process to keep the line moving. I recommend planning to stay here for at least a few hours. There are many decades of country music to look at and it is all worth your time. I parked in the Music City Center parking garage which was very close to the museum and would recommend it.

    Great Architect
    You are pleased with the museum before you even enter because of the exterior. The outside of the building is so unusual with the piano keys and musical notes. Inside there are several floors of displays however we were disappointed that many of the more famous country music singer were hardly even mentioned, but you had large displays of people you never heard of, or who had 3 famous songs. That was somewhat disappointing.

    Great History of Country Music
    I had no idea of the breadth and width of Country Music! The museum covered the start and styles of country music and had great detail on all the stars and hopefuls! Very interesting displays on the big stars and the evolution of country music over the decades.

    Mother/Daughter trip
    Loved seeing all the old country music displays. So many memories of listening to them on the radio. Also loved the new country music displays. Have seen so many of them in person. Country music has changed so much thru the years and the Hall of Fame did a wonderful job of arranging them.

    CMA Fest 2023
    My trip to the Hall of Fame was the first on my to do list! My daughter and I had visited when she was almost 6 years old and 22 years later - she had so much more appreciation of this amazing building filled with so much musical history! It was amazing to visit again and it did not disappoint!!

    A huge learning experience for any country music fan!
    We paid a visit to the Country Music Hall of Fame during the weekend of the CMA Fest. It was a wonderful experience and so worthwhile to learn something about the origins of country music. Although it felt busy, it was never crowded and there was plenty of room for everyone to study the various displays and exhibits. We took our time and it took us just over three hours to see everything e wanted. Don't miss it!

    Country Music History
    The museum was very nice and brought back lots of memories of past country singers and their shows. A good history was given on each country singer featured. It was interesting to learn how a lot of them got started and became famous. Interesting to see all the fancy clothing on display that was worn during performances. Fun to see the fancy cars on display from an era gone by. Seating provided to watch movies describing individual singers as well as groups that became famous. Nice gift shop.

    Great displays!
    This museum is very spacious and had lots of cool displays. Loved seeing various outfits performers wore, Elvis’ car, and the gold records. Was very busy but still could move around ok. If you are going to a museum, I recommend this one. It also is a stop on the hop on hop off trolley.

We booked a tour to see RCA studio B and did not know at the time we also booked admission to the CMHOF. We were visiting our son (age 23) who lives in Nashville on a rainy day. We enjoyed seeing the exhibit … although it is a lot to wade theough. When we checked in my son saw Devin Malone was performing in the Ford theater for 45 min and wanted to see him (it was included in the price of admission.). He was amazing! We all enjoyed hearing about his first hand experience in the music industry right before touring the studio! What a great way to learn about the music industry in Nashville!

We are not huge country music fans, but throughly enjoyed the self-guided tour. There were exhibits from early days to current musicians. There were some videos along the way and opportunities to listen to songs. Lots of guitars that were actually used by singers and bands. Give yourself at least 2 hours to visit. And stop by the Hall of Fame star walk across the street.

Our visit to the famed Country Hall of Music in Nashville was the highlight of our trip and so well worth the visit. The amount of Country Music information here is outstanding dating back to its roots and the beginning of the Bluegrass era and Bill Monroe. Costumes and musical instruments from every famous star are on show in glass cabinets along with the Cadillac driven by Elvis Presley with its gold telephone and tv. For a surprisingly small ticket price, we spent a wonderful day here and enjoyed every moment. Do not miss this if you are in Nashville.

Very interesting museum, highlighting both well known and lesser known artists. Exhibits are well curated, and lots of costumes and music throughout the museum!

We stayed far longer here than we anticipated. There’s so much to see and several interesting videos which explore the history of country music.

The record walls are incredible and I spent ages scanning across the rows looking at all the famous artists and songs. I loved the half of fame itself which is in a stunning part of the building.

I recommend allocating half a day to your visit. It was very busy when we got there and we spent three hours there from start to finish, including a coffee break.

I thought there were some obvious omissions of artists that made significant contributions to country music. I also thought there were some other artists that were given too much emphasis as to their contributions. Just my opinion.

The history and info was fantastic. Just way too many people at one time. There was no way to actually read all the info and meander through the museum. With the number of people, it felt like a cattle line the entire time.

It was a pleasure to go through. Very informative. Really liked the Southern rock part. The store was also very good. I probably wouldn’t get the audio again. That seemed like a waste of money. All in all good place to visit!

We read so many reviews saying this was a must-visit even if you're not a country music fan. Unfortunately, we completely disagree! Some of the history was interesting, but for us it was an absolute waste of money. Unless you have a fairly avid interest in country music you are better off avoiding this place.
