seen a lot of museums around the world,” says former Vice President Al
Gore. “This is first class and you will see, you can mark my words, this
will become one of the major tourist attractions for Nashville.”

 “An extraordinary collection!” writes Peter Cooper of the Tennessean.

JCM has also welcomed many famous guests over the past month. In

rank JCM as excellent and many include that it is a “must see” while in
Music City.  

JCM is home to an array of keepsakes that founder Bill Miller has
collected throughout his life. Miller has been an avid fan and follower
of Cash since the age of 9, collecting everything “Johnny Cash” related
along the way. The two forged a lifelong friendship. Miller’s adoration
for The Man in Black shines through every step visitors of the museum
take. Walls lined with records, pictures, historical documents,
costumes, hand-written letters, and even old receipt stubs are sure to
give guests an interactive experience that will be unforgettable. On

much to comprehend. I knew all the memorabilia was somewhere, but to see
it all in one building is an awesome experience. I could spend a week
in here and probably not see every single thing. It’s something that
people that come to Nashville from all over the world will want to see.”

JCM has hosted media and guests from all over the world including
Belgium, the UK, Ireland, Germany, Canada, France, The Netherlands,
Australia, etc. The JCM is conveniently located just off Broadway at 119
