If you are a fan of country music then this is a must see! Lots of history recorded in this museum for future generations to reflect upon, from cars to costumes of anybody who was somebody in the history of country music!

Big beautiful museum, built in 2011, 3 stories. From old country music artists to new. From gold records to dresses, jackets, boots, guitars & more. What really surprised me was that Chris Stapleton had his 2015 awards on display! He just got them!

We spent about 2 hours here, I could have stayed for 2 more. I enjoyed reading the articles etc. The room with the Alabama display was a little small and the way they set it up everyone goes there first, so it was crowded.

This was the last stop of our weekend trip to Nashville. I am glad we went to see the memorabilia however, I was disappointed that the museum did not pay tribute to more of the founders of Country music. Mostly, it was a shrine to the new artists that, in my opinion, aren't what original country music is about. If... More

Not being big country fans, we could not go to Nashville and not learn about the origin and stars that have made it the music the phenomenon that it is today, it was a really informative 3 hours, must see for all country music fans

We went as a family of 4 ( 2 adults 2 kids ages 11 and 14). Kids were totally bored. They did have a small section of interactive things for the kids to do but not much. If you are into country music this is a nice place. My husband enjoyed it. I found it pretty boring. If its raining... More

The Country Music Hall of Fame is fantastic. It's thorough in its approach to the history and storytelling and we particularly appreciated the balance between history, industry information and current stars -- this helped us retain the interest of our kids. We had a particularly good time recording our own songs and mixing them. I wish I could have lingered... More

While I am not a fan of Country music, this was a very well planned and displayed museum. I particularly enjoyed the history of Country Music's beginnings. This is definitely a mecca for Country fans (my husband!), and a beautifully spacious museum.

Really enjoyed the CMHofF! Interesting historical information and fun memorabilia. It was much more about the evolution of country music than the individual artists, which we liked. Also, plenty about the music itself with comprehensive listening stations. If you are a lover of music of any kind d, this is worth your time. Allot about 2 hours.

I visited the venue on my own and found the exhibits and audio tour excellent and very insightful. Just the right amount of information about the legends of country music. The staff were incredibly helpful and there some cafes and restaurants just outside
