    What To Expect

    The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum is the home for this popular American art form, safeguarding over 2.5 million artifacts, and featuring two expansive floors of gallery space, highlighting permanent and limited-engagement exhibitions.

    Touring the two floors of the Museum’s gallery spaces, guests follow the evolution of country music, within the context of American history.

    Visitors experience that evolution through a diverse mix of displayed artifacts, video footage, and carefully selected sound recordings. Biographical panels and audio tours tell the stories of those who have shaped the music, from Jimmie Rodgers to Hank Williams, through Johnny Cash and Dolly Parton, to Garth Brooks and Reba McEntire, and beyond.

    Many artifacts from today’s groundbreaking artists such as Taylor Swift, Luke Bryan, Carrie Underwood, and Keith Urban are on display in the contemporary gallery space. Visitors of all ages can discover connections between country music’s past and artists of today, and have the chance to engage with interactive stations. Highlights include recording and songwriting areas, a forty-foot guitar, music trivia, and more.

    The museum offers amazing tour experiences and opportunities to play an instrument, enjoy an archived film, or hear live music from country legends and renowned songwriters, with over 250 programs and activities each year.

    Four unique shops—The Museum Store, Circa, Hatch Show Print, and the Haley Gallery—located on the property offer a great selection of books and music, museum souvenirs, original artwork, locally-made gifts, and country lifestyle apparel. Also, be sure to grab a bite to eat at one of our three restaurants—2|22, Red Onion, and Bajo Sexto Taco.

    Audio set was disappointing but the museum exhibits are fantastic
    Cynthia_M, Jan 2023
    It was great but I didn’t think the audio set was worth it. The narrator basically was saying everything we could read in the exhibits. So we ended up not using the audio set and it was annoying to carry around. Besides that annoyance, the exhibits were fantastic and the videos were so much fun. Plus we learned a lot!
    A very cool experience...

    A very cool experience getting to walk through time with country music. Loved all the artists name plates that told where they were from. Surprised seeing so many from my home state of Arkansas

    My fiancé and I had a lot of fun learning of the evolution of country music. Even though I’m not the biggest country music fan, I still had a lot of fun.
    Wonderful
    Amanda_W, Jan 2023
    We did the listen has you went along it was so nice to hear the history of the artist. The exhibits was all nice
    Enjoyable!
    Kelly_I, Jan 2023
    It was wonderful!!! The only thing I’d recommend is having a few seating options/benches along the way and not just at the video sections. There’s so much to see and read that it is timely. We spent 3.5 hours and it wasn’t enough time to really read everything!
    Beautiful version of all...

    Overall it is an average or below average museum. Very little interactive activities and just boring with not great flow throughout the museum.
    Really enjoyed the...
    Jodi_L, Dec 2022
    Really enjoyed the history displays. I learned more than I already knew and remembered times forgotten. I also like that every time I come, there is something different. Third time since 2009. No experience has been the same. Refreshing each time.
    Awesome
    doris_d, Dec 2022

    Worth it
    NANCY_S, Dec 2022
    We enjoyed the entire history of the museum. The costumes the music and the interactive pieces were really enjoyable. Disappointed to see Taylor Swift as a part and Florida Georgia Line oh well.
    Well worth the admission....
    Robert_M, Dec 2022
    Well worth the admission. Was only tour we took. It is 2 stories not 3 as they lead you to believe. 1st floor is only shops.
    Great experience
    Michael_C, Dec 2022
    Fantastic history and wonderful memorabilia. The audio feature was very informative and would recommend it as a useful tool when making the tour
