I really enjoyed the museum. It's definitely a must for any Cash fan who finds themselves in Nashville. At $16 per person, some may find it a bit pricey but I thought it was worth it and I was pleased to learn a bit more about the man in black.

Located just off Broadway Street, an easy walk from CMHOF, this unassuming building houses a lot of Cash memorabilia and presents multiple videos for viewing. Fascinating journey through the years with music, outfits, and information. Others must think so, as well, because it is a busy place. Food options are minimal. Great shirts available in the gift shop. I picked... More

Great museum filled with fun memorabilia and new fun facts about JC. It's in the heart of the music / drinking strip and is a good fast stop between bars. And don't forget to grab a goo goo across the street.

A fantastic collection of articles from all periods of Cash's life, from crop sharing beginnings to the end of his life, these are interspersed with recordings of his music, his musical inspirations, and his devotees. A special exhibit also spotlighted "The Million Dollar Quartet" and was very interesting. The displays were well documented and included not just his music, but... More

From his birth certificate to his last song recorded and everything in between. The experience would have been better if they'd had more of his music playing throughout the museum. After all, it IS in Music City!!
