NASHVILLE, Tenn. – The Country Music Hall of Fame announced Monday that they set an all-time attendance record in 2012.
Museum officials said 564,777 people visited last year, the largest number of visitors in the institution's 45-year history.
"We would like to thank our local, national and international visitors for such strong support," said Museum Director Kyle Young in a release.
Young added that the strong year was attributed to several factors, including several live programs and events, as well as a trio of new exhibitions.
