TIP#1: Their items are pricey but for $3 you can purchase a tube to secure your purchase for the way home. TIP#2: You can get a 10% off coupon when you purchase a ticket to the Country Music Hall of... More

We were given an extensive history of the business almost to the point of boredom. The presses were not working that day unfortunately and the printing of your own poster although accurate to the advertising was underwhelming. I would have paid double the amount to have a more interactive experience.

My wife and I really enjoyed our tour of Hatch Show Print. Our guides were very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. It was clear that they loved Hatch. The tour was hands on, which is important for my wife, who gets bored with just a bunch of facts. We were able to see the machines in action, hold some of the parts,... More

Unique souvenirs and art from Nashville. Nestled in the Country Music Museum, they also have tours of the print shop. Very cool off-the-beaten path activity/visit.

Interesting insight into how they used to print in the old days- except the old days are still with us there. Small but good store on the site too.

VERY cool store with unique posters, t-shirts, and other gifts. You can see the printers and learn the history. It's worth picking up some souvenirs while here.

This was really a worthwhile experience. I had no idea what hatch show print was all about. They gave a very good lecture and tour and you came away with your own souvenir print. Well worthwhile

We didnt take the tour but wish we had. The store has many reprints of old posters and other memorabilia. Nice place for a quick visit while in the downtown area.
