    The self guided tour is great. They'll literally let you just wander around the building looking at stuff. You can take as much or as little time as you like.

    Be careful where your seats are. There are support columns that obstruct view and being seated under the balcony can obstruct view if you're tall.

    My favorite venue in all of Nashville (possibly the world). If you get the option, choose balcony tickets and prepare to weep from the beauty of the venue and your favorite artist's show.

    When you're finished with the Country Music Hall of Fame, take in a show at the historical Ryman Auditorium. It's been around since the 1800s and is called the "Mother Church of Country Music."
