Wonderful museum to visit
My husband and I went to this museum and were very impressed on how
well everything is laid out. Some museums can be overwhelming but not
this museum. The film that is shown is great. It shows you the history of the
music that was made in Bristol, VA. All of the exhibits are carefully presented
in a clear manner and there are many interactive activities to participate in.
Parking is available right across the street in a free parking lot.

If you really want to learn about the roots and history of country and folk
music, this is the place. Has an authentic, well-researched feel...not glitzy
like Nashville can be. Great exhibit on the Bristol recording sessions. Nicely
balanced across various artists/groups. It would be easy to let the Carter
Family dominate the museum's exhibits, but I think the museum did a great
job of keeping the scope broad and fair.
