"The staff was knowledgeable and accommodating"
I'm not even a country music fan, my wife and brother-in-law are. But, i spent more time in the museum then they did. The staff was knowledgeable and accommodating, they were familiar with the vme tickets, they were able to provide additional information regarding the area, and were very professional.

"This is well worth the day."
This is well worth the day. You may go at your own pace, great for school age kids because their are touch screen computers, kids can pull up records, look at the old or new record label,and listen to a little diddy, i took my kindergartner and he had a blast. Not engaging enough for kids under 5, even though i took a 4 and 2 year old as well. I recommend when you come out you go around the corner and eat lunch at jacks bbq!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

"I would recommend this to people that are going to visit Nashville."
The reba exhibit was wonderful. It is great to see and hear about singers and actors family history and how they get started in the business. It was great to see the older style of country music outfits and to hear some older country songs. The carrie underwood exhibit was amazing as well. I would recommend this to people that are going to visit nashville.
