There’s a lot of emphasis on contemporary country music, but they do try their best to show the connections between today’s and yesterday’s scene. Some of the latest additions include an 800-seat theater, a new event hall with a view of the city, a print shop, plenty of storage, some classrooms, and even an educational area named after Taylor Swift.
Some of the new exhibit galleries—known as the ACM Gallery and the Fred and Dinah Gretsch Family Gallery—show off stuff from the latest and greatest in the country music scene like the story behind Luke Bryan and Blake Shelton doing their thing to host the Academy of Country Music Awards.
Technology enables visitors to earn badges and other electronic doodads as they make their way through exhibits, make up song lyrics, and check out things from the archives. If you're in town and want to see things for yourself admission is $25 per adult with kids under five getting in for free—just remember those boots and cowboy hat.
