  • Description

    The Patsy Cline Museum, located on the second floor of the Johnny Cash Museum, is commemorating and celebrating the life and legacy of Patsy Cline, one of the most important country singers of all time. Patsy Cline died in a plane crash on her way home from a show in Kansas when she was only 31 years old. During her short life, she left a mark on the music industry, recorded 3 albums, and reached to the top of the Billboard country chart, twice.
    The museum was founded by Shannon and Bill Miller and is open since 2017. Its exhibits are arranged in chronological order and focus on different stages in Cline’s life, from her growing up in Winchester, Virginia, to her tragic death. See the original porch seat from her childhood house and stop by the Drugstore she worked in as a teenager, with its wooden both, soda fountain, and milkshake maker. Continue to the vinyl records hall, which has an entire wall covered with every 45’s record Cline released during her life, accompanied by photos of her taken while recording.
    At the theater, you can watch a short movie detailing Cline’s story and clips from her performances over the years. Pay a visit to Cline’s home with her husband, walk through the living room and kitchen, and take your time in the record room to watch her performances on the TV and to explore some of the couple’s favorite albums.
    The museum houses an extensive collection of Cline’s memorabilia and artifacts, including a vast selection of her stage costumes, some of them made by her mother, awards she was given over time, her salt and pepper shaker collection, her membership card to the Jimmy Dean fan club, handwritten letters, the Key to New York City given to her in 1961 by Mayor Robert F. Wagner, and many more items. Some of the items on display are related to Cline’s accident, such as a condolences telegram sent to Cline’s family from Elvis Presley’s manager.
