NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum in Nashville has turned 50.

The Tennessean reports the museum celebrated the anniversary Saturday with $1.50 admission, the same price as the museum’s opening day in 1967.

Live music and cupcakes were served up in the museum’s conservatory. Museum CEO Kyle Young was presented with a commemorative plaque in the shape of a giant record album.
