Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum
#1 of 43 Museums in Nashville
Like many other great museums, this great institution is truly enjoyable and celebrates America through a thoughtful exhibition of a classic American art form.
This museum is a must for country music lovers, beautifully laid out and in chronological order, one of the best museums I've visited.

Musicians Hall of Fame and Museum
#2 of 43 Museums in Nashville
We thought we had seen all the music related museums in Nashville until a friend (who is in the Song Writers Hall of Fame) suggested we visit the Musicians Hall of Fame.
Most music museums focus on bands where the frontman/signer is the focal point, but this museum gives you the the true history of the musicians and their instruments behind the songs.

RCA Studio B

The best museums are the ones rich in history and this one had it in spades!
My wife and I visited the Country Music Hall of Fame Museum and added the RCA Studio B tour and this tour was the perfect addition and a great way to break up our visit to the museum.

Lane Motor Museum
#4 of 43 Museums in Nashville
My fiance is a car geek and even he was surprised by the variety of vehicles in the Lane museum; they're unlike any we've ever seen at other car museums!
I've gone along to a lot of car shows, show and shines and museums over the years.
Andrew Jackson's Hermitage
#5 of 43 Museums in Nashville
I love going to history museums and Presidential homes are always on the top of my must go list when visiting a new city.
The artifacts they have are well preserved and visitors can get very close to them unlike some museums.

It is a bit smaller than many of the Washington DC museums which made it east to see everything.

A few of the interactive exhibits weren't working when we were there, but overall, this is one of the best museums in Nashville, second only to the Hall of Fame.
It is 4 levels including a museum of George Jones history, collections, interactive karaoke, rocking chair film clip studio, truly beautifully done.

Cheekwood Botanical Gardens & Museum of Art
#11 of 43 Museums in Nashville
If you enjoy botanic gardens and art museums, this is well worth a trip out of downtown.
We absolutely loved it...beautiful flowers, exquisite views/photo opportunities, trails, herb gardens, running water, a mansion/museum, an adorable miniature railroad, etc.

Madame Tussauds Nashville
#12 of 43 Museums in Nashville
The facial hair and detail is quite amazing, but Tussaud did perfect the art of wax figures long ago and having one of her museums in Nashville is definitely a nice addition.
Our family has visited a few wax museums and this was by far the best.

Tennessee State Museum
#13 of 43 Museums in Nashville
We always appreciate towns with free museums, but usually have fairly low expectations ... this one exceeded our expectations for sure.
What often interests me about southern history museums is how they describe the expulsion and extermination of Native Americans and the experiences of African-American slaves.
