COUNTRY MUSIC HALL OF FAME® AND MUSEUM EXTENDS CLOSURE TO THE PUBLIC THROUGH AUGUST 31
Jul 30, 2020
The Country Music Hall of Fame® and Museum today announced that its galleries will remain closed to the public through Monday, August 31, 2020.
“The museum’s top priority is the health and safety of our guests and our staff. That guides our decisions about opening, closing and every other consideration,” said Kyle Young, CEO, Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. “We look forward to the day when guests from all over the world can explore our galleries again, but the continued increase of COVID-19 cases across the nation causes us to feel that it is wise to remain closed at present, to protect employees and visitors.”
Though its galleries are closed, the museum continues to offer music and music-related experiences to those eager to engage with the website and through social media channels. The museum’s online offerings include:
· Songwriter Sessions, in which website visitors hear elite country songwriters sing and talk about their work, Tuesdays at 8 p.m. CDT on Instagram Live
· Family-friendly programming, including art projects, instrument workshops and songwriting instruction, Wednesdays at 11 a.m. CDT via FieldTripZoom
· Past performances and interviews from the museum’s archives, available on the museum’s website
· The museum’s podcast, Voices in the Hall, which presents conversations with music’s most fascinating and influential figures
The museum will monitor developments and rely on guidance from public health officials when making future decisions about opening.
