  • It's a little bit pricey. Almost $70.00 for 3 people. The Patsy Cline museum is upstairs but is not included in that price. Was a little bit bummed to hear that. There is a lot of reading to this muse...  more »

  • Very cool place. A wonderful tribute to a music icon. Lots of memorabilia and music. We easily spent two hours looking around and didn't even realize it. Educational too. I really enjoyed the handwritten letters and the focus on the positive side of Cash's life for a change. Good food in the cafe was a bonus :) Worth the visit for sure.
  • Small exhibit. Some of the items were really cool but there were too many people to enjoy the experience. Country music hall of fame was much better. I would advice skipping the Johnny cash museum and just seeing some of his items at the hall of fame
