Impressive and extensive are two words that comes to mind. That characterization is well supported by a warm and welcoming team that was very supportive of their visitors taking in the whole world of music presented here. The sure organization of this exhibit was such that many people can have a uniquely different experience at the same time. This to me, is indeed the essence of African America and further the true experience of African American Music. One can see the roots of many streams and visualize indelible impact that our music had on..well...everything. I will come back again and again because there is much to learn, and quite simply, I love everthing about it. Linnie E. Yarbrough, Sr.

We enjoyed the live music in the lobby, the introduction in the auditorium and all of the exhibits. The interactive booths, videos, tables with ear phones and the staff were really helpful. There were artist we didn't see, but I guess you can't have them all. And most of all, their awareness of COVID was evident. There was a check point when we entered the building, signs encouraging us to stay within 6 feet of others, covers for the earphones and space between the seating in the auditorium. We really ENJOYED it.

This was far and above what was expected. You will not regret your visit. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and not sure if we saw it all. Very entertaining, educational,and very uplifting All genres were exciting. The interactives were fun as well. I call this 12 on a1 10 point scale. It’s a first stop must see when in Nashville. Plenty of guides to answer your questions. Very affordable. Convenient parking

Museum is fantastic all the way around. It is set up for a premium experience. Very educational and entertaining. We loved every minute (stayed over 2 hours) and would have stayed longer but we were hungry! Great addition to downtown Nashville.

My family and I enjoyed all the history of the museum. It was a lot to listen to, read and the videos were awesome. We will definitely go back again and bring others with us!
