Bill Monroe Museum

Museum features most of Bill Monroe's awards and his personal effects. The highlight is the Cadillac. Many items have been donated by fans. The museum is new and growing, but it worth seeing for any music fan. $5 admission.

The museum had its grand opening on September 13, 2018, on what would have been Bill Monroe's 107th birthday. A great place to visit and share Bluegrass music history with children.

Multi-musically-dimensional Bill Monroe remains the only person inducted into the County, Bluegrass, and Rock and Roll Hall of Fames. The museum displays one of his Cadillacs although, like Bill himself, it's a rather down-to-earth Cadillac.
