A wonderful look into the lives of Johnny and June Carter Cash. Spent about 1.5 hours in the museum and even though I grew up loving Johnny Cash, I learned some new things bout his life and times. This a must see for any fan...More

There's a lot to see in a small, small space. This museum needs to be better organized and better lit. It was hard to maneuver the exhibits because it was so crowded. Hopefully, since this is still a new business, they'll get better organized as...More

The museum is small but thorough. It shows his influence and talent without shying away from his struggles with addiction or his first marriage. I like Cash so I am biased. but even if you don't like him going through this museum might give you...More

They really did an excellent job on the timeline of his life with straight forward facts and terrific exhibits. Quite a bit of photos and his clothing, along with old footage of him on TV from the old days. I learned a lot!

Great exhibits plenty to see and a fitting tribute to JC. I read somewhere that Sam Philips regarded Cash as the greatest songwriter of all time. This was from a man who didn't hand out accolades easily. One poignant item on display was a poem...More

I was not sure what to expect at this museum as it looks small on the outside. When we were inside, there was a fair amount to see. I felt that the museum did a good job at conveying the history and importance of the...More

It will cost you $20 per person to tour the museum. If you are a die hard Johnny Cash fan then you will want to check the museum off your bucket list. The museum will take you about 2 hours to view and they are...More
