    Must stop while in Nashville! A great look at one of Country music's more well known performers. Great collection at personal life with a good video look at his tv/movie career. Good job to staff!

    A great retrospective on the life of Johnny Cash. Make sure to turn left at the end of the hall to check out the Sun Records exhibit. A few too many replicas of historical items, but great collection.

    A beautiful tribute and a fascinating display into the life of Johnny Cash. It also pays tribute to early rock'n roll artists during the Sun Records period. A must see museum in Nashville!

    This is an awesome memorial to a legendary musician. I'm admittedly not a big fan of country music, but I'd certainly recommend checking this place out to even the most diehard non-country folks.

    The picture with Johnny Cash sounds corny but is actually really cool! The stone wall inside the museum is the wall from the Cash house, and you can touch it!

    So much music history in here. Great music playing but so much more. Highly recommend if you're looking for a small piece of history.

    One of the few tourist places I like to go, in any city. I live here and have been several times, even without the excuse of taking my out of town friends.

    Pretty small museum. There's really only a few rooms, but the exhibits are nicely designed and there are lots of stations for listening to his music.

    Cool museum but bathroom situation is terrible. There are 2 single bathrooms in the ticket/gift shop area and apparently a bathroom inside the museum but even w/ ticket they didn’t let us go back

    My hometown Spirit Lake, IA is one of the places sung by Johnny Cash in "I've Been Everywhere Man". If you haven't been, GO!

    Expensive, small, overcrowded. We couldn't enjoy this as it was too packed. Staff disinterested - they may know how bad it is. Too bad!

    Charged us tax on TN's tax free holiday. Said they "just opened" & "didn't participate because we were just notified & didn't have time to prepare" also their "manager doesn't know how to do that". BS
