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. « less

Take a few minutes and stop at this unique museum if you're in the area. It's not the most life-changing thing you'll ever do in your life but it is entertaining. It really gives you an idea about the sheriff made famous by the movie. It won't take long to go through.

The staff was exceptionally helpful, friendly, courteous, & knowledgeable.... More

Our trip from 16 hours away was planned around the 25th annual Buford Pusser Festival. The mueseum staff was excellent. Julia stayed an hour past her normal scheduled time the day we arrived to allow us to go thru the museum. The staff also helped us choose resturants and sights to visit during our trip. The "artifacts" on display are... More

My wife and I stopped by the Buford Pusser home and museum, after I watched the movie the first time. We were the only people on the tour and as soon as you walk in you are taken back to the 70s The founders of the museum took great lengths to provide you with as much mementos and information that...

The Buford Pusser museum captures a moment in time providing a snapshot of life of the south in the 70's. Inside the museum are original furnishings and mementos from Buford and his family. Admission is $7.00 (credit cards accepted) and once in you view a eight minute video of Buford and his life. Photos ok, no video. The home is... More

A lot of hype...would be nice if you actually had someone to tell you about Buford. You just walk through and look at his stuff and if you don't know who he is there is no interest.
