Arts Access Fund
The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum’s Arts Access Fund subsidizes the cost of field trips to the Museum and fees for distance-learning programs for K-12 schools with demonstrated need. Subsidies are distributed on a first-come, first-served basis, as funds are available, with priority given to Title I schools. Please see the Arts Access Fund Application for eligibility details and to apply for funding.
Financial assistance may also be available through the Tennessee Arts Commission’s Student Ticket Subsidy, which supports artist fees, tickets, and transportation so that Tennessee public school students can experience a broad variety of cultural opportunities, arts disciplines, and artists. For details, please visit Student Ticket Subsidy.

Please visit our Teachers Resources section for lesson plans to use prior to bringing your students to the Museum.
A minimum of one adult chaperone and a maximum of two adult chaperones per every ten students is required for all school programs.
