September 29 - October 21

Students can explore the museum with a fall break activity pack full of gallery games, at-home activities, and cool keepsakes. Request a pack at the museum box office, then use the activities to check out the exhibitions Emmylou Harris: Songbird’s Flight (opens October 5); The Judds: Dream Chasers; Little Big Town: The Power of Four; and Outlaws & Armadillos: Country’s Roaring ’70’s. Check out new museum objects from artists such as the Brothers Osborne, Ray Charles, Maren Morris, Ralph Stanley, and Taylor Swift. Get high-tech in the ACM Gallery and the Dinah and Fred Gretsch Family Gallery to record a song, test your country music knowledge, and more. Hands-on programs take place Thursday through Sunday in the Taylor Swift Education Center. ​

Thanks to our partners at Nashville Parent, the first 500 students will receive a free pencil case to take back to school with them.
