Stopped here mainly for my wife, who "was country when country wasn't cool." If you remember that song you will definitely enjoy this place, although even younger kids will probably enjoy the old costumes and especially one exhibit where you can create a tune by using your feet. We had seen at least one of the gowns there before- we caught the Judds farewell tour and the dress Naomi wore was on display. It is not the Country Music Hall of Fame (Nashville) but it does a good job of explaining the development of country and bluegrass music in Kentucky. I would have liked to have seen more personal effects from the stars, but they have done ok considering they are a smaller regional museum and have to compete with the national hall as well as the stars' own sites, like Loretta Lynn's Butcher Holler and Hurricane Mills. Plenty of parking, accessible, and the gift shop and rest rooms are free. Senior discount but not AAA. As a bonus, your hall of fame admission ticket also gets you in free to the Bittersweet Cabin Village on the Renfro Entertainment Center grounds.

What a wonderful place to visit and to learn about the music of Kentucky. It is well laid out and gives visitors an overview of musicians, songs, instruments and "trail" of periods throughout the years. The artifacts are wonderful and the written explanations of instrument, artists, and ways different periods of Kentucky's history ( e.g., wars, depression, occupations, etc.) affected music added to the "tour." This is a really great venue to learn as well as experience this part of history.

Went to hear a all night gospel singing. The place is large and the seats are comfortable. There is several little shops to check out while your there. You can bring your own snacks and drinks too.

Easy self-guided tour with lots of pictures and "costumes" on display. Not a fancy place and doesn't look like much outside but a lot of work has gone into showcasing the history of how the current music developed. Our older adults loved the history. You can even record your own soundtrack in the sound booth if you wanted. Some places to sit down. Not hard to get around so tennis shoes not a requirement. A gift shop has local items and music for sale.
