Birthplace of Country Music Museum Special Hours During Bristol Rhythm

September 17, 2014

The story of Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion comes full circle with the opening of the Birthplace of Country Music Museum. For the first time, visitors to the festival have the opportunity to explore Bristol's origins as the birthplace of country
music—the reason Bristol Rhythm was created. Everyone is encouraged to share this important story of American music during the festival; it is an interactive, state-of-the-art experience unlike any other. Featuring touch-screen technology, cinematic film experiences and acoustically perfect sound quality, the museum is a "festival" of sights and sounds that visitors from all over the world have heralded as one of their favorite museum experiences of all time.

Special museum hours during Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion are Friday and Saturday, September 19-20, 10:00 a.m. — 9:00 p.m. and Sunday, September 21, 11:00 a.m. — 6:00 p.m. Festivarians are encouraged to purchase tickets to the museum early in the day so they can explore in one or more trips throughout the day if needed. Museum day passes allow multiple entries on the day of purchase.

Tickets to tour the museum are $13 for adults, $11 for children 6-17, seniors, students (with student ID), and military. Children 5 and under are free.

Note: There is no charge for festival goers who wish to participate in the Moon Bound Girl book launch event Sunday, September 21, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. Visitors must have a festival wristband to gain entry. Those wishing to attend the book launch will need to RSVP by Wednesday, September 17 to tchildress@birthplaceofcountrymusic.org.
