For tourists interested in more than the country music & bar scene, the Nashville area has a lot to offer. From the slave trade to civil war sites, it's an area rich in history. A free visit to the library's 2nd floor "CIVIL RIGHTS ROOM"...More

It is a remarkable building with a vast interior. Besides being a public library, it hosts displays of Nashville history and currently an exhibition of photos of famous private estates and houses. You should not miss it when visiting Nashville.

Best parking downtown day or night. short walk to Ryman and Broadway. Safe to walk around. Sorry, did not visit the actual library. :)

Make sure to visit the children's section - well worth seeing. The other sections were nice but the children's area was awesome. Suggestion: Visit the St. Louis Library downtown for an AMAZING library.
