Exhibit Based Lessons

During an interactive tour of the exhibits, students learn about the history of country music. Integrating the museum's architectural details, music, films, visual art, and historic artifacts, the exhibits provide students with a multi-layered learning experience. During the tour, students have opportunities to listen to recordings and learn how different people, styles, and influences have affected the music. Familiarize students with the artists they will meet at the museum with this engaging pre- and post-lesson activity. Created for students in grades K-12.
