The Willie Nelson & Friends Museum and General Store
A family owned Nashville Tradition for over 35 years!
Country Music fans from around the world visit year after year to experience the unique country music history that comes alive as you journey through the Willie Nelson and Friends Museum.
This is a very personal museum that evolved over the years from friendships established by museum founders, Frank and Jeanie Oakley. The Oakley’s were longtime friends with not only Willie Nelson but many of his legendary country music friends as well.
There are lots of personal items to see donated by legends like Webb Pierce and Faron Young who were regulars at the museum prior to their passing. The museum has always been known as a great hangout for many of the stars you’ll see represented in the many exhibits.
The museum is tru country music history and showcases an “All Star” line-up of some of traditional country music’s greatest stars! Among the many highlights on display include the Martin guitar and paystub from Willie Nelson’s Grand Ole Opry debut in 1963.
You’ll also see many personal items of the great Patsy Cline. Also featured are several “Nudie of Hollywood” suits worn by the legends Lefty Frizzell, George Jones, Webb Pierce and Porter Wagoner.
