“Fun Museum, Well Worth It”
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I really thought this was well done. I can't say much more about it other than it's very thorough and interesting. It inspired us to go find Johnny's burned-down house in Hendersonville after we toured the museum, which led us to a part of Nashville we hadn't seen or experienced.

This is a must see for anyone staying in or passing through Nashville. This museum is all about Johnny Cash: as popular as Nashville itself.
This museum is loaded with all kinds of items that come from Johnny Cash's life and career. From the beginnings when he was a relatively unknown artists, to the glory days of his superstar status.
They have done a very good job of including many different items, and even have film clips from his short lived acting career. MUST SEE!!

“Small but packed”
Reviewed 12 July 2014

The museum is well worth a visit. It's not very big but it is packed with memorabilia, television footage and, of course, his music. It was a little tight getting through with a wheelchair but it was worth it. We enjoyed our hour strolling down memory lane.

“Cool Museum”
Reviewed 12 July 2014 via mobile

My husband is a big Johnny Cash Fan and this was a cool place to visit while in Nashville. Thought it would be bigger for $15 a person admission but they had a great set up and lots of memorabilia.
