Full description
Explore the riveting history of one of the most significant developments in 20th-century American music at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. After entering through the ornate Hall of Fame rotunda, styled after musical notations and the black keys of a piano, head into the museum’s core exhibition, Sing Me Back Home: A Journey Through Country Music. Immerse yourself in the history and sounds of country music, its origins and traditions, and the stories and voices of many of its honored architects. Explore an array of photographs, artifacts, text panels, recordings, and archival footage as you move through the museum’s collection. Don’t miss limited-engagement exhibitions, chronicling the thrilling period of country music in the 1970’s, or technologically-enhanced exhibitions focusing on contemporary trends in the genre. Stop by the Taylor Swift Education center to take part in instrument and songwriting programs on the weekends, or catch a panel discussion. The walkthrough of the museum concludes in the esteemed Hall of Fame Rotunda to view the artists' plaques who have earned Country Music's highest honor.

      The Country Music Hall of Fame is an excellent museum. We attended on a Sunday and it was initially very crowded, but as the afternoon wore on the crowds dwindled and the experience was much, much better. If you are a true country music fan, you will love this experience and you should allow at least a few hours to take in everything.

      Visiting the Hall of Fame was a lot more fun and interesting than I anticipated. Country music is not my go-to music genre but I had time to spend in Nashville so I'm open to a learning experience. The museum had been created in a most excellent way. Lots of memories (my dad liked country music when I was growing up). Well-worth the visit.

      We had two friends come from Southern California and this is one of the places they wanted to see and of course we take anyone who visits there. It was wonderful educating and even though I seem to go at least six times a year I always see something new and learn more. Four of us had a wonderful experience!
