|About these ratings|
Uncover the enigma behind The Man in Black with a visit to The Johnny Cash Museum. The museum, which opened in April 2013, boasts the world's largest collection of Johnny Cash artifacts and memorabilia, including films, handwritten notes and letters penned by Cash himself along with more than 25 costumes made famous during the music legend's career. Exhibits spotlight different periods in Cash's life, including his years in the Air Force, his marriage to June Carter and his famous prison concert tour. And because the museum is officially endorsed by the Cash family, you can bet you'll stumble across other personal mementos not available to the public anywhere else, like a stone wall excavated from Johnny and June's Hendersonville Lake House that's been repurporsed into one of the exhibits.
Not much of a Cash devotee? Recent visitors say you should still make time to see the museum. "As I had mentioned to the ladies at the counter, we felt The Johnny Cash Museum was better than the Country Music Hall of Fame & Museum," one TripAdvisor user said. "A must see, put on your bucket list whether you're a fan or not." The Johnny Cash Museum welcomes visitors daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Admission for adults costs $14; seniors, students and members of the military pay $13 and youths 15 and younger can get in for $10. Children younger than 5 enjoy free admission.
