  • If you love Johnny Cash you will not want to miss this! Self guided tour that takes about an hour. Just steps away from Broadway

  • Johnny Cash was an amazing musician! Never knew he had so many singles and albums. He is a true legend of Country And Gospel music. He loved his June Carter... Great museum, lots of things to very and listen to about him and his life.. fascinating. Would return again...
  • Little over priced for the small size of the Museum. Some good reading in there to look at and take photos of. The Patsy Cline museum above is even smaller, unless you have a heart tied a Patsy Cline I’d save my time. The cafe was ok until we found a long brown hair at the bottom of the beans… until that point we enjoyed the day. But the POP tech music was up to loud and the chicken a bit dry. The museum didn’t give a military discount but the restaurant did. The guys hat on backwards to the side that brought my food out didn’t look to happy to be there or say anything when putting the meal on the table. We love Johnny Cash, this is a one and done thing for me. The gentleman taking the tickets is the only one that should be getting paid in there. He explained a great deal to us. Just being honest.
  • It's a small museum but it has a nice flow. There are lots of items to check out! It's very reflective, so picture taking is a challenge. The music is great 😉 There were a few items from Roy Orbinson and Jerry Lee Lewis too! It was so much fun, we'll do it again!
  • This is a must for any Johnny Cash fan. LOTS to see! I wish I could have touched some of the items like his bible as everything was in a case. How wonderful it would have it been to hold the Bible belonging to one of my inspirations! But seeing it was just fine. Really great details, lots of rare items you wouldn’t expect to see, and the interactive features were neat. You could watch live performances, and more. Learned a lot about the Man In Black. The guy who took our ticket was a cool dude, genuinely friendly. It’s a small museum, got a little cramped at times but the content made up for it completely! Will go back to learn more about the Man in Black!
  • The museum was small but loved all the information about Johhny Cash as well as all his personal drawings and experiences. It was great to see the collection and learn more about him.and his life. I loved the section that talked about the Million Dollar Quartet as well seeing Jerry Lee Lewis's jacket.
