Established in 1961 to preserve the history and traditions of country music, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum features rotating exhibits and frequent live performances by some of the genre's top artists. The museum holds a collection of video clips and recorded music, put together to illustrate the story of country music as it evolved over the years. Just seeing the exterior of the keyboard-shaped building in the heart of the city may rank high on your itinerary, but don't miss a chance to spend a little time exploring the museum's oral history exhibits, containing over 600 interviews with songwriters, producers, and performers. The museum also features an on-site gift shop and restaurant.

  • This was an experience that I will never forget in my entire life. I think I was most excited to go here over anywhere else in Nashville. We purchase tickets in advance and therefore were allowed to go straight in. You start on the third floor and work your way down to the first floor where the exit is. I thought that was very smart. The displays were incredible! I love older Country Music and they did not disappoint. I would love to come back here with my kids one today. I know they would love it as much as I did. The gift shop was awesome too!
  • This place was so cool!!! We budgeted one & a half hours based on the recommended time. I wish we would have planned on a little bit more time. It was so interesting seeing costumes & outfits country stars have worn over the past several years. Loved seeing how fashion has changed & the details in the clothing. Martina McBride section was one of my personal favorites. Definitely recommend but make sure you budget enough time before tours, if you are doing tours.
