October brings fall break for students across Middle Tennessee, and the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum has a fun way for kids to explore country music history through it’s Fall Break Fun program.
From Friday, Oct. 4 – Sunday, Oct. 27, students in PreK – 12th grade can explore the galleries with a Fall Break Activity Pack — it’s full of keepsakes to use in the museum and at home. Request the pack at the box office, then set out for some fun!
In addition to the museum’s permanent exhibit detailing country music’s early roots to modern day (Sing Me Back Home), here are other exhibits kids can have fun exploring: Kacey Musgraves: All of the Colors; Brooks & Dunn: Kings of Neon; Still Rings True: The Enduring Voice of Keith Whitley; Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ‘70s; and We Could: The Songwriting Artistry of Boudleaux and Felice Bryant. Kids can also view new artifacts from artists including Miranda Lambert, Reba McEntire and Darius Rucker in the museum’s showcase of the most recent collection via American Currents: The Music of 2018.
Further, students can participate in hands-on programs taking place Thursdays – Sundays in the Taylor Swift Education Center. Find the museum's youth and family programs HERE.
