If you are a guitar enthusiast this is the place to go. You will need to do the Vault tour. The collection of guitars is exquisite and the people that work there are very knowledgable about the guitars.

Museum, intimate concert venue and bar - unique, and great souvenirs - really eclectic - self guided tour - located next to some great restaurants - parking can be a challenge in the evening

Songbirds is a local joint that packs some history in with a couple of stages now that they've bought out the old Revelry Room downstairs. The stages are set up well in a big room with a bar along the side. You won't get A-listers...More

This is very good place to see many classic, famous guitars up close, and to learn about the history of some of the well-known models. The vast majority of guitars are electric, and virtually all of those are Gibson and Fender. A visit here is...More

Absolutely the most amazing guitar collection I have seen. The most insane double neck and custom firebirds in one place. So well presented. The attendant/clerk Rob was very engaging. Can't put a price on the mojo in this place. I will be back .

Hello, ccoutlaw is correct. Your show ticket will grant you access to the front portion of the museum only. And while there are guitars available to see, viewing is definitely limited in comparison to a normal tour time... More
