Mike Curb Conservatory and Curb Records Courtyard
The Mike Curb Conservatory event venue opens to the Nashville sky and was designed to symbolize the “front porch” origins of country music, and to function as a welcoming place for guests to assemble. The architects drew inspiration for its heavy steel frame from railroads and bridges, which connected small towns where country music came to life. Guests can relax as they listen to the water gently cascading along the Grand Staircase. Just off the Conservatory, the tree-lined Curb Records Courtyard event space can be tented and dramatically lit for more intimate gatherings or corporate events.
Event Hall: HCA Lobby, Carlton Family Terrace, green rooms and City National Bank Private Dining Room
The Museum’s Event Hall features 10,000 square feet of event space with hardwood floors and glass walls with stunning views of the Nashville skyline, making it an awe-inspiring event space for corporate gatherings, trade shows and exhibits, awards receptions and dinners, as well as live concerts. For corporate event planners, the adjacent HCA Lobby event space is ideal for receptions preceding events in the Hall, breakout sessions, refreshments, and event overflow.
The Carlton Family Terrace, Nashville’s unparalleled rooftop outdoor event space, is an idyllic setting for receptions, outdoor celebrations, as well as a unique venue for live music. For corporate meeting planners, this lush green space is adjacent to the Event Hall and the HCA Lobby, and can easily serve as an extension for larger corporate events.
Planning an important VIP dinner or lunch? Need an artist’s green room for a Museum-hosted concert? The intimate City National Bank Private Dining Room has downtown Nashville as its backdrop, and can be configured as a cozy lounge or a formal dining experience to suit your needs.
BMI Hall: Bud Wendell & Steve Turner Boardroom
The warmth of cherry wood panels envelops the BMI Hall and the stately Bud Wendell & Steve Turner Boardroom on our fourth floor. Floor-to-ceiling windows reference piano keys, part of the building’s musically themed design, with views overlooking the Music City Walk of Fame Park and downtown Nashville, making it a choice venue for corporate event planners. By day, natural light lends a warm glow to this unique event space. By night, the view of the city is even more dramatic.
The Bud Wendell & Steve Turner Boardroom meeting space features a 65-foot, U-shaped granite table with handsome leather chairs and exhilarating views of the city skyline, day or night. For corporate event planners, full production capabilities are available for technical communications needs, video production, or musical performances.
The BMI Hall and boardroom rental event spaces are accessible via a private elevator for VIP guests and can be configured for corporate meetings, classroom settings, intimate performances, and breakout sessions, as well as dining.
Constructed by the same acoustic team who created the Lincoln Center in New York City, the Ford Theater has played host to CEOs, dignitaries, and, of course, our legendary performers. Although it seats over 200, the theater retains a warm, intimate feeling, which is why we refer to it as our “living room.” Full production capabilities are available for corporate events or private affairs.
The 776-seat CMA Theater is an unparalleled Music City event space rental for live concert performances. This superlative, state-of-the-art venue is also highly adaptable, providing the perfect setting for large corporate events, including general sessions, sales meetings, television broadcasts, press conferences, and much more.
A sun-drenched space adjacent to the Museum’s CMA Theater, the Grand Foyer provides a convenient and captivating setting for pre-concert receptions and breakfast and lunch breaks from general sessions, as well as meeting registrations, silent auctions, and trade shows.

Here, within the bronzed unbroken circle of country music, you can experience the essence of our mission—preservation and education.
