“Of emotions, of love, of breakup, of love and hate and death and dying, mama, apple pie, and the whole thing. It covers a lot of territory, country music does.”-Johnny Cash
We love being members of the museum and enjoy the benefits like free admission to Museum programs, including weekly songwriter sessions, instrument demonstrations and family activities!
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is a place where the history and traditions of country music are celebrated in a way that appeals to everyone in the family! My kids have grown up going to the museum and we treasure this iconic spot in Music City!
We’ve made paper dolls, book marks and sharpened our creative skills in the Taylor Swift Education Center with their fun and unique weekly family programs. Members and guests can also take advantage of Songwriter Sessions, Musician’s Spotlights, interviews and more weekend programs.
I learn something new every time we visit the museum! Where else can you see Elvis’s Cadillac, one of Dolly’s custom gowns and engage in fun activities in the Taylor Swift Education Center? Also, if you have a chance to tour Historic Studio B and make letterpress art on a Hatch Show Print Tour, I highly recommend it.
The Country Music Hall of Fame is my number one recommendation to those looking for things to do in Nashville! It is a one of a kind experience with interactive exhibits and over 2.5 million artifacts from country music’s roots to current day!
The museum is unveiling new exhibits in 2020 including American Currents: State of the Music and exhibits on Chris Stapleton, Martina McBride and Country Music Hall of Fame member Bill Anderson.
