A museum which lets you get as close to Johnny Cash. John R. Johnny Cash was a songwriter, singer, actor and author. He was one of the most prominent American musicians of the 20th century. He is remembered as a country music icon but his genre of music also comprised of rock and roll, blues, folk and gospel. He was initiated in Country Music, Rock and Roll and Gospel Music Hall of Fame.

This museum has so much to offer the Johnny Cash fan. There is plenty of information and exhibits to take you back in time and learn about this legendary man.

  • Small in size but packed with Cash memorabilia! The museum does a good job of telling the story of the life and career of the legendary performer. You can just shop in the gift shop filled with books, t-shirts and CD's if you don't want to pay to enter the museum. Upstairs is devoted to Patsy Cline. A separate ticket fee is required if you want to see that too I think. From quite humble beginnings Cash lived an amazing and inspiring life.

  • Great little museum with a fantastic display of memorabilia from the man in black. Takes around 60-90 minutes to go around it but its crammed full of interesting facts, items, and video to keep you entertained and really great insight into a true legend. A must for any fan or even those that aren't will find plenty to interest them and maybe convert them..... Enjoyable and definitely worth a visit if you're in Nashville.

  • Beautifully done! You'll learn a tremendous amount about Johnny Cash's life, music, inner self, family and more. From actual letters, wardrobe, performances, movie, notes and more, our whole group thoroughly enjoyed walking through the museum. Plus it's easy to navigate and all on one level. Kudos to the curators and all who brought this museum to life. Every music lover, no matter what genre, must visit!

  • We lost track of time here. So much to read and view. Very neat the way they display all the items and easy read learning about his past. When we left we realized we had been in there for 2 hrs. Very neat place, one of my favorite places we visited in Nashville.

  • If you love Johnny Cash and you are fortunate enough to score discount tickets, this may be a good match. We went on a Saturday and it was incredibly crowded. Wall to wall people. The staff seemed apathetic, (with the exception of a tall girl with curly hair who took our tickets. She deserves a raise...) I feel the $20 ticket price was too much for what was on offer. And it does not include the Patsy Cline museum upstairs. That's another $20. Very small space, though some of the exhibits were interesting. My husband is the main Johnny Cash fan in the family, and he said he would have enjoyed it if it had not been so crowded. That's the only reason I'm giving it 3 stars instead of 2. I honestly enjoyed walking across the pedestrian bridge across the street more than I enjoyed this museum.
