Great location right off Broadway and the Honky Tonks. Easy to see and absorb in an hour at a reasonable price. Great displays and history of this giant of country music.

We truly enjoyed our morning tour of this museum and seeing all of the wonderful music memorabilia. This museum not only high lights Cash, but also the amazing musicians of his era who came up through the ranks with him!

If you come to nashville and you don’t come here you shouldn’t come back. It’s JC. The place is great. School yourself and your kids on this American legend. Please please please.

The Johnny Cash Museum was great. Everyone was friendly. Lots and lots of items to see and read. The line moved along quite quickly but everyone was friendly. Places to sit to see short videos. Photo opportunity for a fee. Gift shop was nice.

This place is awesome with so much to see. Wish we could have seen more but ran out of time. You'll want to spend time here if you are a Cash fan!
