Basically the educational programs are functioned by the museum and after one year of its opening the Country Music Foundation Library was opened to public in 1968. The museum was closed in December 2000 and reopened in May 2001 with a huge investment of 37,000,000 US dollars.

It also gives the opportunity to view videos of live music performances, historic museum store and some other public programs.

For instance from the exterior, many of its windows resemble black piano keys and there is a radio mast that takes a shape of a diamond. Also some parts of the structure have taken the shape of discs that look like CDs. The museum also has a huge collection of 200,000 recorded sounds in CDs and it includes about 98 percent of country music recorded before the Second World War. Other than that, the museum exhibits many other creations of world’s famous legends that include a large number of clips of Elvis Presley and many others in the history of country and American folk music.

The Hall of Fame Rotunda is a round room which gives an impression of equality to every one and it is the place that welcomes a whole family to be involved in many interactions with musicians and artists in order to gain experience in even composing music in a better learning environment.
