George Jones Museum Set to Open in Nashville

Major new museum is planned for Nashville's Lower Broadway honky tonk district.

Nancy Jones -- the widow of the legendary George Jones -- announced this week that she will soon unveil plans to open the George Jones Museum. The museum and event center will incorporate a gift shop, restaurant, event space and also a music venue, located in downtown Nashville at 128 and 130 N Second Avenue.

"We are overjoyed to share George's legacy and memory with the Nashville community," says Nancy Jones. "We hope that this will draw George's friends and fans worldwide to our great city. George and I made this our home, and he would be happy to know that we found a home to continue his legacy in the heart of Music City."

Designs are underway with imminent plans to reveal in detail all that will be offered at the museum.
