About Patsy Cline Museum
Located on the second floor at 119 Third Avenue South, the Patsy Cline Museum houses the largest collection of Patsy Cline artifacts in the world featuring personal letters, photographs, costumes, clothing and household furnishings from her Nashville dream house that have been locked away for more than fifty years. Guests will travel back to her humble beginnings in Winchester, VA and see family photos, possessions and even the very booth she waitressed as a teenager at Gaunt's Drugstore.

Many of the costumes exhibited are creations designed and sewn by her mother, Hilda. Patrons also will have the unique opportunity to step inside Patsy's famed Rec Room, an exhibition containing original furnishings owned and used by Cline and her husband Charlie Dick. A bio film also documents Patsy's career and is hosted by noted actress Beverly D’Angelo, who was nominated for a Golden Globe for her portrayal of Patsy Cline in the 1980 film “Coal Miner’s Daughter.”
