Inside the Johnny Cash Museum.

 The Johnny Cash Museum has landed at the top of both the Forbes and National Geographic must-see travel destinations lists. Forbes recently released a list of the Top 5 “Must-See” Nashville destinations, with The Johnny Cash Museum in the top slot. National Geographic published a list of the worldwide top four “Pitch Perfect Museums,” museums dedicated to a single musician. The Johnny Cash Museum earned the top placing, beating out the ABBA museum in Stockholm and the Kalakuta museum in Nigeria.

“It’s a great honor to receive the ongoing positive comments and rankings from top publications and organizations,” said founder Bill Miller. “It’s a tribute to and validation of Johnny Cash’s continuing popularity and our ability to honor him with a top notch venue in an amazing city.”
