The Buford Pusser Home and Museum stands as a moment in time, as if waiting for Sheriff Buford Pusser to return home from another shift serving the public. The modest brick ranch home contains the original furnishings, photos, cars, guns and memorabilia of the Pusser family. Buford Pusser was the subject of several major motion pictures. The "Walking Tall" movies tell about his life and tragic death.

The Buford Pusser Home & Museum is definitely worth your time. It is filled with room after room of Pusser memorabilia. My sister and I toured the museum after completing the annual bus tour which carries you around McNairy County to see many places associated with the life and death of Buford Pusser. The tour even included lunch with Dwana,... More

We had driven by before and saw how small the house/museum was and decided it couldn't be that much. Were we ever wrong. The house is full of memorabilia and the docents have great stories to tell about Buford and the family.

As a long time fan of the walking tall series I was looking forward to going. I own books and the movies. We're almost done with the tour and the guide says you can't take pictures of everything. If you don't want people taking pictures at all you should say so ahead of time and have signs posted. The incident... More

I had heard stories about Buford Pusser my entire life and had seen the Walking Tall movies, but visiting the museum was very enlightening. The house is decorated/furnished just the way it was when he died. There are lots of family photos and newspaper clippings on display. His Corvette is also on display. There is a small gift shop that... More

we didn't know what to expect, but it was a wonderful visit. Shirley, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and does great honor to Sheriff Pusser. It is truly a gem! I highly recommended it if you are in the neighborhood! She even let us get pictures holding one of Buford's sticks.

If you haven't seen the movie Walking Tall, I suggest you do. Not the new one with "the Rock", but the original 3 from the 70s. The house is full of memorabilia, and photos of his past. His younger daughter still resides in the town. They even have the Corvette he died in. There is a 15 min movie on... More

I was 8 miles away visiting the Shiloh NMP when I decided to come here. An older lady gave me a guided tour and answered my questions. She said she knew Buford from grade school through high school, and had even talked to him on the phone the day he died. Among other things, she said the first "Walking Tall"... More

The history of Buford Pusser fills the museum to the brim! From the first time I heard of him, years ago, I became enthralled with his tenacity for ridding crime. Very kind and helpful assistant to show us around. I enjoyed every minute we spent here. Very interesting! I would visit again! I was absorbing all I could of this... More
