A Merle Haggard Museum and Restaurant? YES PLEASE. The iconic singer/songwriter absolutely deserves a space devoted to him. The new Merle Haggard Museum and Merle’s Meat + 3 Saloon will be located at 121 Third Ave. S. in Nashville. The museum and restaurant is set to open in summer 2018.
Merle’s Meat + 3 Saloon will be housed on the ground level with the Merle Haggard Museum on an upper floor and the museum will be right near the Johnny Cash museum.
It will include performance wardrobes, instruments, professional and personal possessions and are designing interactive exhibits as part of the museum. The restaurant will be operated by the Swett Family, who are a staple on the Nashville scene operating their Swett’s Restaurant for 62 years.
