The museum offers live entertainment, a video on the country music history and plaques commemorating great stars such as Johnny Cash and Patsy Cline. The memorabilia on display include over 3,000 costumes, original manuscripts and the most fascinating of all: Elvis Presley's Cadillac made of gold.
Belle Meade Plantation:

The estate here is huge and was once the breeding ground of the best of the nation's horses. Today, guides dressed in ancient costumes take you around the house which also contains a museum of Victorian carriages and a fine restaurant.
As a monument to the founders of the city, a replica of Fort Nashborough was built in 1962. The style and design of the building are authentic and the fort offers a good opportunity to understand the lives of the pioneers of the frontier of the past. Here are five wood cabins with people dressed in costumes of that period to recreate the atmosphere of the eighteenth century.
This impressive government building is situated on a hill in the center of the city and was designed by William Strickland. It is an excellent example of the revival of Greek architectural style. Strickland was so pleased with his creation that he asked to be buried behind one of the walls of the buildings itself. Some of the rooms in the building have been restored in the style of the nineteenth century.
