Definitely worth the
Wonderful visit. Completely enjoyed it. Reasonable entry fee. Nice layout. We had a lot of laughs on the green screen with the photo op. Johnny Cash's daughter Tara was there today signing her book Recollections. Sweet Lady. Great book. Thank you.
Fun little museum all about Johnny Cash. I'm a big Johnny Cash fan so I was thrilled the entire time. It did seem like it was a bit much (cost wise) for something so small but it had a lot of interesting facts and memorabilia. I feel like they should keep track of how many people are in there (or if they do, lower the number a bit) because there were times I found it hard to move or see anything because people were everywhere.
We liked the museum, but unable to enjoy the full experience. There were tons of listening stations through out the museum with community head phones. Muti user headphones are portals for entry ear bacteria and outer ear infections. Even though the museum was busy, we saw only one person use a head phone. Along with us, the rest of the guests also chose to pass on using the ear phones. We are surprised that the brilliant museum design team missed this.
We are Johnny Cash fans. I did not believe this exhibit was as personal about the life and times of a legend like Johnny. If felt more like the unapproved biography than the real thing. In fairness there are some amazing artifacts: Did you know Johnny Cash was proficient in Morse Code? Or that he was an accomplished radio operator in the Military? There are films, songs and some clothing in this small, crowded museum. I stress "small." It is difficult to see a lot of the exhibition because you have to wait or move on. I feel for the entrance fee, the museum could restrict by amount of people per hour, to allow for a more free flowing experience. You and I know that will not happen. So expect crowds and try if you can to learn something you did not already know about Mr. Cash. In particular I was interested in his early life, what ever happened to his children, ex wife and then June Carter? More personal stories and artifacts would have been something of interest.
