The Country Music Hall of Fame is the first obvious stop in town for country music fans. Because the museum’s collections and stories are so well presented, and because the exploration of country music runs so deep, even verging into blues and gospel at times, there’s plenty for all music fans to appreciate. That is especially true with their new-this-spring exhibit, Dylan, Cash and the Nashville Cats: A New Music City, which runs through December 2016. Permanent exhibits include plaques honoring Hall of Fame members, over 3,000 items relating to the history of country music, plus a library & media center. Instrument demos, songwriter sessions, Appalachian clogging, line-dancing, TV tapings, live broadcasts & other events take place at various times. $24.95; $22.50 sr. citizens & students; $21.50 military personnel; $14.95 ages 6-12; free for children 5 and under.
