  • Fabulous really interesting and a reasonable price. Loved it and so did my wife who was less of a fan 
  • Very interesting self guided tour of museum loaded with facts and memorabilia from the man in black An audio component would really add to experience 
  • Spielberg possibly... Ruler of the universe?... Naw bruh. You're not sly enough to be the walking legendary prodigy whom is even worth disguise. Goohlehhh... RAPE is like running across people elevated. Think about it. It completely makes sense yet robbin' cradles is not a proud memory you should forget to remember. Keep walking Wall St... see if New Mexico is where you land or did hello lose itself in someone who is not as blind as any bat. LIKE I said...I have acronyms for days and money won't buy you glorious memories for the future generations of our heartfelt souls whom will embark upon this fiasco of puppeteer ieness randomly odd-like madness.
  • small but pretty cool museum. lots of history crammed into a little space. I brought my 7 month old and is something I don't recommend bringing a kid that can't walk on their own because of the tight space. the bathroom combo lock is a bit weird. tickets are purchased at the same register for merchandise purchased in the store. this was confusing and a little annoying. i see a lot of negative reviews because of the admission cost. maybe I'm used to NY metro area prices, but I didn't think $18 was overpriced. if you're a Cash fan, it's worth the stop. visit can be done in about an hour.
  • Over-rated, and over-priced. If you're expecting an Elvis Presley Graceland style museum, you will be VERY disappointed. The place has no soul. No meaning. I was done in about 15 minutes of entering. Nothing of particular interest. I feel if the price was $5-$7 it would have been a fair price. I felt cheated on the price, for what I got at the Johnny Cash 'Museum'. Johnny Cash fans might like it, but if you're not, don't go and spend your money on other interesting things in Nashville, like seeing live musicians.
  • Not too big, not too small. If you're at all a Cash fan, you'll truly enjoy this experience. Thorough, respectful, and informative. Cameras allowed - no flash or video. Reasonable gift shop.
  • Great place with lots of interesting information. It definitely touched my heart. I had to laugh and I had to cry experiencing the interactive displays of this American music icon.
