Johnny Cash Museum

Daily 9am - 6pm
119 3rd Ave S, Nashville, TN

The Basics

Visitors to the Johnny Cash Museum can wander through halls lined with memories and artifacts spanning the singer’s life, from his upbringing in Arkansas through his impressive career—including his launch with Sun Records, performance highlights (such as his famous appearance at Folsom Prison), and television cameos. But what makes this museum truly special are the personal effects that only a close friend could collect—childhood report cards, military uniforms, and handwritten love letters to Cash’s wives, including June Carter. The Cash Museum features interactive exhibits, an extensive gift shop, films, and a café serving light fare.

Downtown Nashville tours, including the popular Nashville trolley tours, often include the Johnny Cash Museum as one of their stops, along with other music-related attractions such as the Ryman Auditorium, the Patsy Cline Museum, and the Country Music Hall of Fame.
