Recently opened, the Johnny Cash Museum is one more thing every visitor and local to Nashville must add to their list. This museum is a celebration of the life of Johnny Cash and features a huge collection from founder, Bill Miller. Bill has collected everything he could find associated with Cash for many years and has opened this museum as a tribute to The Man in Black.

Items found in the museum include:

  • Historical documents and letters
  • Awards
  • Costumes
  • Instruments
  • A handwritten manuscript of Cash's last song ever written
  • Interactive exhibits
  • Pictures
  • Videos
  • Records
  • And so much More!

With the help of friends, colleagues, family members and many others. Miller was able to bring this collection to the public. Not only can fans enjoy a look into the life of Johnny Cash as a music start, but they can also enjoy many items from his life before he became famous. Many items from the old House of Cash in Hendersonville are featured in the museum, along with artifacts from other museums around the country.

An entire section is dedicated to the time Cash spent in the Air Force. You can view his uniform, transmitter and service papers, along with many other items never released for public viewing before.

Another section labeled the Memphis/Sun Records section features a J-200 Gibson guitar, many 45 r.p.m. and 78 r.p.m. from Cash. Enjoy everything from the awards he won to the different formats he charted in, ranging from records all the way to digital downloads.

The museum is found on Third Avenue South in Nashville and opens daily at 11am. It stays open until 7pm and you enter and exit through a gift shop with some of the coolest Johnny Cash t-shirts and souvenirs you can find. Admission is $14 and discounts are provided for students and active military personnel with an ID.
