I live in Nashville but don't often go to all our museums. I just took a friend from London, England to our Country Music Hall of Fame. He was very impressed and I enjoyed going for my second time. I liked the current display about Chet Atkins - it is well done. The museum is clean and inviting. I am appreciative of the efforts of the people responsible for putting together the museum It is a nice addition to Nashville. I will take future guests to visit. I disliked the lack of inexpensive parking.
I loved it! There is a lot of influence on the older country stars and history, which I am into and I enjoy. But my husband likes the more current country stars, and they did not have a lot about that. They may have, but the area where some of the more recent country music stars were referrenced was under construction.
I am very annoyed at the Country music hall of fame because Dottie West has been dead for 19 years and they have still not inducted her. Dottie was one of the most influencal woman of country music, she was the first female singer to win a Grammy, she helped many aspiring stars e.g Larry Gatlin, David Frizzell etc and yet they decide to shun her, come on put her in.
We enjoyed the Ryman Auditorium the most out of all 3 tours they offered. We found the museum tour very boring. We were told it could take 1-2 hours...we were done in about 15-20 minutes. (Basically because most of the artists were not ones we were familiar with and skipped by some of it.) We had the audio tour, which we paid additional for... So BORING!!! Not worth the extra money. Studio B tour was somewhat interesting. We took our 3 kids: 5, 11 and 14...they were very bored. If you are a true country music fan, you will probably appreciate it more than us somewhat fans!!!
We have been the the CM Hall of Fame three times now. It is fantastic. I could spend days there. We have visited museums in major cities and small towns all over the U.S. and Europe. We have never enjoyed one as much as this one.
The history is interesting and fun but the music puts gas in my tank.
The new Marty Robbins exhibit is good but the Ray Charles exhibit remains my favorite. It is all so great. Thank you for this wonderful beautiful museum.
I love the whole place, I feel that I leaned alot more about country music and the singers I liked it so much That I am going to take my husband here this trip,I can't wait to leave Nashville here we come.
Made this part of our trip to Memphis and Nashville this summer. The hall of fame is a great place to visit, it has so much history of country music and how it began. We spent over three hours touring, it is well worth the money.
I went with a friend of mine not knowing exactly what to expect. Both of us had "chills" multiple times as we walked through the three levels of the Country Music Hall of Fame. We were both quite impressed!
As stated above, the cost of admission is pretty high, so I probably wouldn't drag a large family here. The building is beautiful however, and you don't need to be a country music fan to visit. I will say that you only need to visit once,cause once you've seen it, you've seen it all. The staff is sort of rude and stuffy as well. This is one place you can skip visiting if you're coming to Nashville.
