The only thing I would recommend is to make sure you are there early enough to give yourself time to see everything. We arrived right after 3:00pm and found ourselves having to rush through some of the exhibits since they close at 5:00pm.

This museum is very well put together. They have the complete history of country music. There are three floors that are packed full of exhibits giving details on the famous and well as the not to famous. Lots of very interesting videos and tons of Gold and Platinum records on the walls. Loved the Webb Pierce Pontiac Bonneville with the... More

Been to Nashville dozens of times and have never visited the CMHOF so we made sure it was on our list this trip. Glad we came but it is probably a one time visit. Not really a return again kind of place. We enjoyed it and are big country music fans but thought it was too much guitars and clothes... More

I am not a big country fan but this is a great museum with lots of history to see. We purchased the tickets in advance that included the RCA Studio B tour, more up my alley but we both enjoyed both tours.

I dragged 3 boys who didn't like country music to the Hall of Fame. They actually really enjoyed it. I wish I'd had longer to really get into it, but we ended up going through really quickly because we had to get back on the road. The museum is well laid out and has a lot of great interactive exhibits.... More

We appreciate your comments. We always like to know when someone who isn’t really a country music fan ends up enjoying their visit. Since you didn’t have much time perhaps you can visit another time. Thanks again for letting us know that you (and your boys too) enjoyed our museum. More

I am a big country music fan. I thought the museum was boring, lacked music playing throughout. It's a country MUSIC museum! Also, at $25 per person, not very affordable for a family of 4 or 5.

We are sorry that you did not enjoy your visit with us. Our rates offer a ticket which is good all day with come and go privileges, and most guests take 2-3 hours to tour. We have listening booths, and audio as well as video providing music throughout the museum, spanning from the early 1900’s to current country music. More

We went to the Hall of Fame seven years ago and I still feel like I learned something new this time around. Of course, they aren't rewriting the older articles and (didn't seem like) they didn't add to the older exhibits either. They are still really cool to revisit though! The hall does not forget about the new country stars... More

Country Music Hall of Fame is a must while in Nashville. So rich in country music history, and exhibits. Can't wait to tour again.

Country music lovers need to come at least once in their lives. My favorite attraction is Elvis' gold Cadillac.
