  • In 1963, the CMA announced that a Country Museum would be built in Nashville. It opened on April 1st 1967. Prior to stardom, Kathy Mattea & Trisha Yearwood were tour guides at this museum.
  • When viewed from different angles, this building can appear to be shaped like a piano, a bass clef, a radio tower or the fin tail of a Cadillac. (From Aerial America)
  • The mission of the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is to identify and preserve the evolving history and traditions of country music and to educate its audiences. A must-see when in Nashville!
  • The buildings windows mirror the keys of a piano and the round discs on the towers symbolize records and CDs.
  • Amazing even for lukewarm country music fan.
  • If the thought of a museum bores you, dont fret. Drive over for a pure country music experience. Make sure you check out the rhinestone costumes and original lyric sheets!
  • Welcome to Music City! Please visit the Symphony Cafe 9-2 M-F. Free WiFi! We also have free tours available of the wonderful Schermerhorn Symphony Center. Please come on over across the street!
  • Go to the Hampton Inn one block away to get the guest parking for $6/10hrs rather than the official parking lot at the site, which is $20 apiece.
  • Arrive at 4pm CT (one hour before museum closes) to get half price on admission!
  • It is so worth it to spend $35 and go on the RCA studio B Tour. It includes museum and audio your also. Plan to spend 3 hrs if you do the RCA tour or 2 hrs if no RCA.
  • Get the audio tour. It's cheap and makes the museum experience much better.
  • Stop and see the Reba exhibit. everything else in the place is cool but this rocks. Oh, Elvis's gold Cadillac is cool too.
  • Use the #MHOF hashtag on your photos, videos, tweets, etc.
  • Allow 2+ hours to really do it all. And be sure you get the audio tour. Well worth the money and tons of great stories, history and memories.
  • Make sure to also walk through the park across Demonbruen from CMHoF to see the WALK of FAME.
  • Bank of America members receive free admission the first weekend of every month
  • Very good museum ... HIGHLY suggest the Studio B tour
  • Membership is the best deal in town for music lovers. The Saturday morning songwriter sessions are always good. The Ford Theatre is a great room, not a bad seat!
  • Really fantastic museum - completely worth the visit and the entry fee even if you're not a country music fan.
  • It's a must-see. If you're a big country music fan, this is the place for you. From intricate exhibits covering every angle of country music to s sprawling gift shop, there's something for everyone.
