Interesting. I’m a half-hearted country music fan, but found this fascinating. Easy to follow. Clean museum. Prepare to pay a premium for parking

Nashville Music Pass: RCA Studio B, Hop-On Hop-Off Trolley, Hall of Fame & More
The museum’s were great. The trolley hop on and off not so much. The trolleys we’re full most times so you would have to wait for the next one. Also since this was a narrated tour, you couldn’t here him talk because of noise and his video and sound didn’t work. Very disappointed since was my first trip to Nashville.

I loved the Studio B experience! Our tour guide Brenda was awesome. Standing in the sweet spot of the recording studio where so many stars stood singing and changing the world with their music! Gave me chills. I grew up listening to Country music and attended several concerts as a child. Jerry Lee Lewis, Charlie Pride, Jeannie C Riley, Dollie and others. The tour brought back wonderful childhood memories!

The HOF is amazing. Have already recommended to friends. Studio B was an unanticipated bonus. The guide was excellent. Only wish there had been information other than just about Elvis.

Very informative tour of Studio B. So much information, it was wonderful hearing all the history! The Country Music Hall of Fame was impressive as well. Fun to explore and see many different things on numerous entertainers. I highly recommend both tours.

Brenda our tour guide was the best most knowledgeable guide I’d ever had.. She made the tour a trip back to the 50’s and 60’s. You felt you were there while in Studio B .. She shared facts and events I never knew about the music and singers who recorded all those No 1 songs!! Thanks Brenda for the best tour ever! Delores from Dallas

Loved the Country Music Hall of Fame RCA not so much.

The Country Music Hall of Fame was amazing. We spent 3 hours in there. Probably would have stayed longer but it was closing. We aren’t country music fans per say but may have walked away as one. The history and memorabilia was just wonderful. The RCA Studio B tour was ... meh. The guide was brilliant but there’s really not much to see there. If you’re a big Elvis fan go.

The Nashville Sound

RCA Studio B is credited with reviving the popularity of country music in the 1960s, introducing what became known as the Nashville Sound. This style of music was more sophisticated than other country styles, and incorporated string instruments and background vocals. Music fans consider a visit to the studio, which made Nashville into an international recording center, a must-do when visiting Music City.
