The Basics

With so many attractions packed in, Downtown Nashville deserves a prominent spot on any itinerary in the city. While the neighborhood is easily explored on foot, you can also hop in a horse and carriage for a tour of attractions like the Johnny Cash Museum and Tennessee State Capitol. Night owls can experience the best of downtown aboard a BYOB open-air party bus as it cruises through Lower Broadway and Downtown Nashville.

Glen Campbell Museum Admission Ticket in Downtown Nashville
The museum as a whole was great. The exhibits and the memorabaila was fantastic. And he really let people in to his life and let them know what he went thru at the end. His career was great. I would recommend this museum , You'll probably walk away knowing alot more about Glen Campbell then when you started in. Very clean, staff was great and very accomodating. you will really enjoy your visit.

When to Get There

To get a feel for Downtown Nashville, plan to visit during the day to take in the cultural attractions and again at night to experience the famous nightlife. There’s live music pretty much every night of the week, but it’s a good idea to take a look at who’s playing beforehand and get tickets, if necessary.
