Bristol is home to the Birthplace of Country Music Museum, which opened in August, 2014. The 24,000-square foot museum documents Bristol’s story as the Birthplace of Country Music and the 1927 Bristol Sessions through permanent, technology-infused exhibits, a special exhibits gallery, education programs, multiple film experiences and a theater dedicated exclusively to live, year-round music performances. The music legacy is now available over the airwaves with the new WBCM radio station.
