WELCOME

The Kentucky Music Hall of Fame and Museum opened in 2002 with a vision to bring recognition to Kentuckians who have made a significant contribution to the music industry. With that vision in mind, a collection of artifacts and memorabilia highlighting the careers of the over 50 inductees fill the museum.  You can also learn the history of music dating back to the 1800’s.  A common misconception is that the Kentucky Music Hall of Fame focuses mainly on country and bluegrass related artist, however there are inductees from all genres of music as including…..The Backstreet Boys, Loretta Lynn, Florence Henderson, Rosemary Clooney, Keith Whitley, Boots Randolph, and so many more.

The entrance to the building is unique to any other museum and is historical as it was once the sight of the original riding stables of Renfro Valley founder, John Lee Lair. That portion of the building now houses the visitor center and a must-see gift shop with new products and souvenirs.  Most of the original structure of the stable is still intact and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
