We had a wonderful time exploring this museum. Not crowded. As a matter of fact it was quite empty which was great so we could take our time and see and read about everyone.

Not a huge country music fan, but was in Nashville for the first time and had some time to spare. Figured going to the fall of fame/museum would be a good educational experience. The Shania Twain exhibit that was on was very well laid out,...More

I did like this museum. Any music lover would. However, it is quite small for the $24 entrance fee. The Grammy section was fun. Go when they’re quiet then you get to try out all the instruments for as long as you like.

I enjoyed my visit to the museum. There is a lot of reading- but that usually comes with museums. I don't know a lot about country music but found it interesting to walk around and learn about the different artists. I wish there was a...More

We spent about 6 hours here early last year and loved every minute of this place. So interesting to see the exhibits and learn about all the old and new legends of music. Really cool artifacts from country music history and always changing. Recommend!

We spent about 2 hours. It is very detailed and interesting in the history of country music artists. Would recommend it while visiting Nashville.

Felt that the exhibits were incomplete and that overall the museum and hall was overrated. Stories about specific artists just sort of ended and even though it wasn’t crowded still ended up bumping into people. No good sense of flow

We spent about five hours touring the museum and Studio B. Well worth it. Lots of great exhibits; lots of videos to watch. Loved the section with early history of country and bluegrass music.

We had fun touring this museum despite not being diehard country fans. Our only complaint was how crowded it was. (We were there the week between Christmas and New Years.) I highly recommend buying your tickets in advance. Otherwise the 15 minute wait to get...More

I don’t think that is the target audience for much in Nashville or this museum. It might work for pre-teens and teens but there is not much for younger kids and even older kids may not really appreciate exhibits which seemed... More

I am not sure but I believe if you get one of those pamphlets in the stands you see at all the hotels, airports and so on you may get a coupon for a couple of dollars off. I know we did get a coupon for the Ryman.

it is very much a self guided tour. They do have an audio tour you can purchase and if I recall you touch the number for the display that you want information about. It is very leisurely and go at your own pace.
