We had such a great time at this museum!!! It was one of the best ever. I love history and then to be able to be immersed in music… BONUS!!! We were there for almost 3 hours, trying to capture everything there was to offer!! Do it and be sure to get the wristband to capture your playlist as you explore!!!

I am a music fan. I really enjoyed the African American music museum. Listening to all the different music, and able to have an play list that I was able to save and listen to later from my email was an extra bonus.

So much culture and history to learn from the era of slaves to modern day Hip Hop. The interactive exhibit attraction and the ambiance is unforgettable. The cleanliness and staff are bonus!.

One of my favorite attractions I visited while in Nashville. A beautiful site with amazing exhibits. Very interactive and I could spend all day in there
