The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum encourages families to plan a visit during fall break season. Continuing through Sunday, Oct. 21, the Hall of Fame hosts special “Fall Break Fun” activities.
Stop by the museum’s box office to request the free fall break activity pack. It’s filled with games for the gallery experience. There are also at-home activities and keepsake items.
The pack features activities that help kids explore the following exhibits: Emmylou Harris: Songbird’s Flight; The Judds: Dream Chasers; Little Big Town: The Power of Four; and Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70s.
Along the way, you and your students can discover new artifacts in the museum from artists including Brothers Osborne, Ray Charles, Maren Morris, Ralph Stanley and Taylor Swift.
Step into the ACM Gallery and Gretsch Family Gallery for high-tech experiences. Record a song, test your country music knowledge and more. A variety of hands-on programs take place Thursdays through Sundays in the Taylor Swift Education Center.
