|About these ratings|
Music and history lovers can mix and mingle over the exhibits found at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Peruse the plaques dedicated to country music's finest — from Patsy Cline to Johnny Cash — and walk among artifacts like Jimmie Rodger's guitar and Elvis Presley's solid gold Cadillac limo. If you have time, stop to browse the two-story wall plastered with every gold and platinum country record produced, and then head to Studio B. One of the world's most influential recording studios and a Music Row Landmark, Studio B produced more than 35,000 songs by legends like Dolly Parton, Waylon Jennings and Roy Orbison. For an interactive history lesson on the roots and evolution of country music, take a self-guided walk through the Sing Me Back Home: A Journey Through Country Music exhibit, which spans two floors of the museum.
Sitting in the heart of downtown Nashville — across the street from the Gaylord Entertainment Center — the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is open every day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. General admission is about $22 for adults, $14 for youths ages 6 to 17 and free for children ages 5 and younger. Tours and entry to Studio B cost extra. For more information, check out the official website.
