Johnny Cash Bus Exhibit Returns Later This Month
The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum in Cleveland, Ohio is now the permanent home to Johnny Cash's iconic black-and-silver tour bus, the only one he ever personally owned. Those embarking on summer cross-country tours or seeking a Midwestern road trip might want to consider adding this stop to their itinerary and taking a few photos for the scrapbook. You may remember our previous article about the legendary JC Unit One, and if you haven't had the chance to see it in person, the on-board tour is informative, accurate and something you and your family likely won't soon forget. The museum has done a terrific job in collecting the various stories and anecdotes associated with the bus and preserving them as part of it's legacy. This is the most personal tribute we could imagine for the Man In Black, and one that's more meaningful than any plaque or statue ever could be given it's unique and significant contributions to music history.
The JC Unit One is a seasonal exhibit due to being displayed outdoors during the warmer months, and while the museum promises to have the vehicle available to the public by the end of the month, it's advised to call ahead to avoid any disappointment. According to the museum, exhibit tickets are included with purchase of regular museum admission.
