Our 5,000-square-foot Museum Store has an extensive collection of hard to find country music CDs, DVDs, books, souvenirs, apparel, gifts and more. Check our calendar to participate in one of our celebrity guest autograph signings or to see a performance inside the Store. Museum Store programming is proudly presented by CMT.
Enjoy our full service restaurant featuring southern favorites with a contemporary spin. In addition to dining, our 2Go bar is great for sandwiches and other treats when time is limited.
While you are visiting the museum, make sure to stop by Hatch Show Print, located just a block from the museum. Launched is 1879, Hatch Show Print is one of the world's oldest letterpress print shops, now owned and operated by the museum. Visitors can choose from the many posters that Hatch has designed. Visit them at 316 Broadway.
If you're a native of Nashville, the Hall of Fame is a must-see. Really. It's your obligation as a citizen of Music City. And any lover of country music (or music in general...or history...or...) will appreciate the rich history on display in this relatively-new facility. You can see instruments played, clothing worn, and letters or lyrics written by many of the greats of yesterday and today. I'd recommend this primarily for children ages 5 and up, as there aren't a ton of interactive elements (and lots of reading plaques to see what every item is). It's a fun way to spend an afternoon and learn a little bit about what makes country music tick.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is a fun Nashville experience. Displays are well done and informative including a wide variety of country music legends. Not a ton of hands on stuff for the kids, however they loved Hank Williams' ivory suit stitched with musical notes. Helpful staff and an interesting experience.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is the perfect vacation spot for country music fans! You can see instruments that have been played by your favorite artists, or clothing they performed in. You can also find bits of interesting memorabilia from some of country music's most treasured singers!
You cannot visit Nashville without stopping by the Country Music Hall of Fame. It is even within walking distance of the famous Music Row! My family literally spent an entire day at this place. So many exhibits to see and they have an excellent gift shop. Prices are reasonable and you can add a tour of Studio B if you'd like.
Even if you don't like country music, this place isn't to be missed. It's great for both adults and kids - tons of history and information about music history in Nashville, plus tons of samples of music, including some rare live performances, plus hundreds of instruments of all types, some of which you can actually play. Oh, and also hands-on exhibits for kids. And the space is visually really nice as well.
Usually a couple of times a month, they have a "musical petting zoo" where kids can get lessons from actual musicians working in Nashville, and try out a number of different types of instruments. My kids LOVE going here, and neither one of them really likes country music.
