Tennessee State Museum
The Tennessee State Museum is one of the largest state museums in the nation with more than 60,000 square feet of permanent exhibits and a 10,000 square foot changing exhibition hall. The museum's interpretive exhibits begin 15,000 years ago and continue through the early 1900s interpreting Tennessee's history during the Prehistoric, Frontier, Age of Jackson, Antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods.
The original, and now winter, home of the Grand Ole Opry, the Ryman Auditorium is a showcase for the best and most promising in country & western, bluegrass and zydeco acts. Daytime tours of this country tourism mecca showcase the legendary auditorium's history and highlights, even letting visitors stand on the Ryman's awe-inspiring stage.
Schermerhorn Symphony Center
If you've had all the honky tonkin' you can handle on Broadway, a change of pace is just a few blocks away. Nashville might be famous around the world for its country music, but the Schermerhorn Symphony Center provides a world-class facility for classical music. Its timeless design is influenced by many of Europe's finest concert halls, including the custom-built 3,600-pipe concert organ, but it's the high-tech attention to the acoustical details that allows for an unparalleled musical atmosphere. The Schermerhorn is home sweet home for the Grammy® Award-winning Nashville Symphony, so there's a great chance to catch a concert all year round.
Music City Center
While the Music City Center is most obviously about the brick-and-mortar facility to serve our guests, it will also serve as the citys front porch, located in the heart of downtown Nashville. It will be a gathering spot for hundreds of thousands of visitors seeing our city for the first time, just steps from the Ryman Auditorium and the Broadway honky tonks, the musical venues that have launched thousands of careers and help generate the citys nickname.
