Vacruiser2016, Williamsburg, VA – Birthplace of Country Music Museum review on TripAdvisor


This place is a gem! I saw this searching with a free afternoon we had in Bristol and I am very glad I did. We were there for the Night Race at Bristol Motor Speedway and we really enjoyed our trip to the Country Music Museum. The museum and downtown are loaded with charm. The museum has a theater, radio station and is packed with visual appeal and information. The admission fee was very reasonable and the staff was outstanding and so helpful. The gift shop was really good with music, books, local art, t-shirts, hats, etc.

Everything about the festival is awesome! The artists performances, the food and vendors, it’s family friendly in the beautiful city of Bristol. I highly recommend the festival to everyone. We look forward each year to the festival. The festival staff are helpful and friendly and the production and sound people do an excellent job!

Another fabulous festival! Haven't missed a day in all 19 years, fingers crossed to make it 20! Can honestly say that it continues to improve every year. From ease of parking to atmosphere to more and more amazing music showcasing our many awesome regional, national and even international artists on such a variety of stages we're very fortunate. Speaking of music I've always discovered very unique groups pushing the creative boundaries. With our proximity to Nashville I'd love to see more from there as it's such a magnet for world class musicians who are taking music into the future. I always pay extra attention when I hear a group is from there and I've never been disappointed, and am usually amazed. Onward and upward BRR looking forward to your 20th birthday party!
