Small, but interesting. Don't pay full price. Groupon or coupons available. Many Cash artifacts and videos.

I went in not a particular fan, but as someone who enjoyed Johnny Cash whenever I happened to see him be it in a variety show or an episode of a favorite program. I left the museum with a greater respect for him as a person and an entertainer. I would recommend at least an hour and a half though... More

Great range of memorabilia. I learnt a lot more about Johnny Cash than I knew before and the museum was able to portray the full range of his interesting life. Convenient, walkable location and friendly staff. Only niggle would be how crowded it was inside and having to wait to view exhibits.

Visited the souvenir shop then on to the museum. Fairly comprehensive collection of personal items, guitars, stage outfits, gold records and awards, etc. Quite a few video exhibits. As a plus, you are allowed to take still shots inside. Just no flash or video allowed. Worth the $. They give AAA discount.

Love love the museum. Any Cash fan will love the many exhibits. Our son loved it from the moment we walked through the door . Well worth the admission price and the time.

Very good museum of Johnny Cash's life and his music. Bought a Groupon before arriving in Nashville.....making it very affordable. Within walking distance of Broadway.

I have almost every Johnny Cash record, I have been a fan of Johnny Cash all my life, and I thought I knew just about everything there was to know about him. But during my visit to the Johnny Cash museum, I learned several things. My only disappointment was the gift shop. I found the prices unreasonably high,and I expected... More
