Free Nashville Museum


If a visit to Nashville is in your future, then make sure and save time for the Grand Ole Opry Museum. It’s free, it’s fun and it’s totally accessible.

Located next to the Grand Ole Opry in Opry Plaza, the Grand Ole Opry Museum traces the history of the show from 1925 to the present day. It’s billed as the longest running radio show in the US, and it’s still aired twice a week — on Tuesdays and Saturdays. Seeing the show is a must-do on any Nashville visit; however a trip to the museum pre-show will give you more of an appreciation of Opry history.

Inside the museum you’ll find exhibits on Opry legends like Minnie Pearl, Tex Ritter, Roy Acuff, Patsy Cline, Marty Robbins and Jim Reeves. There’s also a history of the Opry venues, and details about how the Opry survived over the years.

Access is excellent throughout the museum, with level access from the parking lot and plenty of accessible parking places close to the entrance.

It’s a great museum, and like I said, there’s no admission charge!
