The Nashville Museums show a wealth of Art and History. It also shows the hopes and desires of Tennessee citizens and the richness of life that they lived. I have put this page together, because it is hard to find all the museums in Nashville Tennessee.
Country Music Hall of Fame, most famous of the Nashville Museums.
It has self guided tours on the history of the performers and for a little more money you can purchase an audio self guided tour. This is especially nice because it is loaded with information that you won't have to read.
This is important to me because after an hour I am tired of
reading. Also you can miss key interesting parts of the tour without the
audio tour. Of all the Nashville Museums this is a must see. Open daily
from 9am to 5pm.
