Birthplace of Country Music Museum
Opened in August of 2014, the Birthplace of Country Music Museum documents Bristol’s long and storied musical heritage.
The 24,000 square foot facility, an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institute, tells the story of the 1927 Bristol Sessions, which resulted in Bristol being deemed The Birthplace of Country Music by the U.S. Congress in 1998. It features permanent, technology-infused exhibits, a special exhibits gallery, education programs, fill experiences and a theater, where live, year-round musical performances are held.
Today, the Birthplace of Country Music® (BCM) keeps local music traditions alive and continues to tell the story of the musical and cultural heritage of the region, its role in the birth and development of country music, and its influence on music around the world.
