The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened on Music Row in 1967. It grew out of its original digs and closed in 2000. The new building in downtown Nashville celebrated its grand opening at 5th & Demonbreun on May 17, 2001 – 11 years ago today. The $37 million landmark houses historic video and audio clips, music, dynamic exhibits, state-of-the-art design, live performances and programs, a store, restaurant, beautiful public spaces and an unforgettable experience – no matter your taste in music. And they’re getting bigger!
