Immediately after it opened in May 2013, the Johnny Cash Museum became a must-see attraction in Music City, receiving accolades from fans as well as the press. That's only fitting, since  Cash (1932–2003) was one of the most influential musicians of his time. A visit to this museum should be on your short list of things to do in Nashville. The impressive collection of personal artifacts on display include handwritten letters, Cash’s custom-made Gibson J200 guitar, gold records, and costumes. Interactive displays bring to life the story of the iconic Man in Black and include stations where fans can remix his songs and listen to other artists cover his music, from worthy tributes (Pearl Jam, Miley Cyrus' remarkably moving tribute) to ones that are just odd (who knew Leonard Nimoy had aspirations to country music fame?). Other compelling exhibits include a history of Sun Studio's (Cash's first label) and a backstage look at the movie about the romance between Cash and his second wife, June Carter Cash (called "I Walk the Line" its the highest grossing musical biopic of all time).
