Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum to Close for Maintenance

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum will be closed to the public from Tuesday, January 22 through Wednesday, February 6, 2013. The closure will allow the Museum to make needed improvements and accommodate construction related to the Museum’s expansion project. It will reopen on Thursday, February 7, 2013.

“We’ve had more than four million visitors since we moved downtown in May 2001,” Museum Director Kyle Young said. “We are usually closed on Tuesdays in January and February for routine maintenance, upgrades, etc. This winter, because of expansion-related construction, our efforts will be more substantial and will require a few more days.  The end result will be an enhanced experience for our visitors.”

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is operated by the Country Music Foundation, a not-for-profit organization chartered by the state of Tennessee in 1964. The museum’s mission is to preserve the history of country and related vernacular music rooted in southern culture. For more information, visit
