Tennessee Museums – This landlocked state is in the U.S. South. Its capital, centrally located Nashville, is the heart of the country-music scene, with the long-running Grand Ole Opry, the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. ‘Elvis has left the building…’
Graceland: This museum is the home of Elvis Presley, the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll. Elvis Presley’s Graceland is open daily with tours, Elvis’ custom jets and our new entertainment and exhibit complex, Elvis Presley’s Memphis. The complex includes a new automobile museum, Presley Motors, and Elvis: The Entertainer Career Museum, the world’s largest and most comprehensive Elvis museum in the world, as well as many more exhibits, restaurants and shops. The tour of Graceland Mansion features an interactive, iPad tour with additional enhancements including photos, video and more. Continue your experience with the all-new Graceland Exhibition Center. This museum has been renovated to help you get a real look into the life and times of Elvis. Visit this museum and the home of Elvis in Memphis.
Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum and Studio B: Take a guided tour of RCA Studio B birthplace of “Nashville Sound”. See Elvis Presley’s favorite studio, where he recorded 200 songs. Take your time exploring the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum where you will see the costumes, instruments, gold records, cars and photographs that are a country music lovers dream spread over three floors. You will want to allow yourself plenty of time to thoroughly explore this wonderful music museum. Located in the city of Nashville.
National Civil Rights Museum – Lorraine Motel: At the place of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s death in 1968 in Memphis, TN, the National Civil Rights Museum is a renowned educational and cultural institution. The Museum chronicles the American Civil Rights Movement with compelling presentations of iconic exhibits, oral histories of lesser-known civil rights foot soldiers, and visceral, in-the-moment experiences. Visitors will learn through emotionally charged, multi-user, multi-touch interactives, and a visually engaging, contemporary exhibit design that guides you through five centuries of history. There is something for the whole family when you visit Memphis.
Bush’s Beans Visitor Center: This was such a cute place to visit with kids! The best part: it’s FREE! Favorites: the little paw print clues for the kids, the interactive exhibits, the short movie made me want beans and I don’t even like beans, the free photo with ‘Duke’, and every single staff member we spoke to was more than courteous and friendly. This was a fun stop on your way to Gatlinburg. The video you can watch is so well done …you see what you would see if going through the plant. But this way you are not trying to listen over loud equipment. The story and history of the company is quite interesting and at the end, you can have your photo made with Duke the dog. The people here are very welcoming! The gift shop at the end had a few Bush novelty items, some canned beans you could buy, and several other nice gift items. We spent about an hour here. There is a cafe here that is open 11 to 3… some locals were dropping by just to eat there which is a good recommendation for the food. Great stop in the town of Chestnut Hill.
Fowler’s Clay Works: Handmade pottery studio, featuring the works of Mike, Cheryl, Ava and the Fowler’s Clay Works crew. All pieces are one of a kind, functional and decorative. Also offering pottery classes for visitors and locals. I would recommend taking a pottery class and make your own coffee mugs that will be custom glazed and shipped to your house. The instructor was awesome and very patient. A must do in Gatlinburg!
Don’t forget to venture to Chattanooga for a visit to the Tennessee Valley Railroad Museum, a train ride and a scenic drive up to Lookout Mountain where you can just about see forever…Give us a call at 352-277-7300 or “chat” with us so we can make the most memorable vacation in Tennessee for your family and friends.

Nashville, Tennessee is named after Revolutionary War General Francis Nash. Originally called Nashborough, it was deemed too English-sounding in the wake of the Revolutionary War, and was renamed Nashville in honor of the French in 1784.
The Grand Ole Opry, an American Icon and Nashville’s number one attraction, is known for creating one-of-a-kind entertainment experiences for audiences of all ages. It’s where unforgettable moments happen every week…moments like the night Trace Adkins revealed a tweet inviting his pal Blake Shelton to become a member of the Opry. With country music’s new stars, superstars, and legends live on stage, you never know what’ll happen next. See the show that made country music famous. You can watch a video intro and then have a great tour guide who takes you backstage and through the history of the building. We recommend this tour to anyone who comes to Nashville- it was very informative and fun! Of course, staying for the show only adds to your enjoyment.
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is the home of this popular American art form, safeguarding over 2.5 million artifacts, with two expansive floors of gallery space featuring permanent- and limited- engagement exhibits. The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is also home to Historic RCA Studio B and Hatch Show Print. Unbelievable, amazing museum, full of music, clothing, cars, records, history, all pertaining to Country Music. They recommend 4 hours and we used every bit of that time.
The Johnny Cash Museum features the world’s largest collection of Johnny Cash artifacts and memorabilia in the world. Walk through the life of the Man in Black depicted in interactive exhibits, films and much more. We feature a Bongo Java Coffee Shop and Museum Cafe. Officially endorsed by the Cash Family.

Belle Meade Plantation is a non-profit historic site located in Nashville, TN. Established in 1807, Belle Meade was revered as the greatest thoroughbred stud farm in the United States. It was home to Iroquois, the first American bred horse to win the Epsom Derby and the great foundation sire, Bonnie Scotland, whose descendants include Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Native Dancer, Big Brown and California Chrome. Belle Meade was owned and operated by the Harding-Jackson family for nearly a century from 1807 until 1906. Today their home is restored to its turn of the century appearance along with several original outbuildings. Lunch is a fun, delicious experience too. It was so interesting learning the history of the area and touring the beautiful mansion and grounds. You also can enjoy the wine and cheese tasting.
