The Birthplace of Country Music Museum is a great place for kids and families to learn about Bristol’s important role in music history – all while having a blast as you go through the interactive exhibits! The Child Museum Admission is good for children ages 6-17. Children 5 and under are FREE and do not require a ticket.
Your ticket gives you admission to the museum for the full day. This means you can enter and re-enter the museum as many times as you want throughout the day, giving you the opportunity to explore the Museum, break for lunch, and return to catch the rest of the exhibits!
When you purchase your tickets online you’ll just need to let someone at the museum’s front desk know that you purchased your tickets online and then give the frontline associate your last name – they keep track of who has purchased museum tickets online!
About the Birthplace of Country Music Museum
The Birthplace of Country Music Museum, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institution, tells the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions recordings, explores how evolving sound technology shaped their success, and highlights how this rich musical heritage lives on in today’s music. Through text and artifacts, multiple theater experiences, and interactive displays – along with a variety of educational programs, music performances, and community events – the exciting story of these recording sessions and their far-reaching influence comes alive. Rotating exhibitions from guest curators and other institutions, including the Smithsonian, are featured throughout the year in the Special Exhibits Gallery. The museum also houses a research collection including an extensive digital archive.
