Excellent Tour - I loved the Studio B tour, and it probably was because our tour guide (Ray?) was so knowledgeable. You could see and feel his excitement for the material he was presenting, which made it more engaging.

Very good tour - Our guide was very informative. She shared stories at Studio B. Made it very interesting. So many displays at the Museum. Wish they had some type of map so you could find the person you were looking for.

Hall of Fame, Great. Studio B - disappointing - The Country Music Hall of Fame is a predictably amazing experience with lots of memorabilia, cars, clothes and records explaining the history, growth & development of Country Music and its Artists over 3 floors…. The RCA Studio B tour was historically interesting but all over very quickly. For the quite significant extra cost, I was expecting something more than a simple walk in through the front door to an empty room where the offices had been, and then into the old studio to hear some recordings that were made there, then back out the door & onto the bus back down the hill to the Hall of Fame.

Fabulous day with Family - The Hall of Fame is a beautiful facility and you could spend hours exploring it! Our kids loved the modern artist area the most. We got to play instruments in the Taylor Swift musical classroom area. Our favorite thing though was the Studio B tour - especially the part where you sat in the dark just like Elvis did when he recorded Are you lonesome tonight in that same room. Only downside to know is that Viator cannot provide the tour time so you need to call the Hall of Fame to book the Studio B tour ahead of time to get the tour time you want.
