Loretta Lynn's Coal Miner's Daughter Museum

We thought we'd stop by at the museum for half an hour and found ourselves leaving two hours later, and we didn't even do any guided tours. This place rivals Graceland easily, if you ask me. Loretta Lynn has so much space devoted to friends and family. It's not just all about one person.

The statue of an Indian brave has been on the Loretta Lynn Ranch property since at least the 1980s, when we snapped this photo.

Loretta Lynn's Coal Miner's Daughter Museum

Take a tour of the Coal Miner's Daughter's plantation home, see a replica of her humble family home back in the Butcher Hollow, KY days, see a giant wooden indian of muffler man proportions and much more. There's lots to see even if you don't spend a dime on the tours. The Coal Miner's Daughter movie is a guilty pleasure of mine, so this place was a real treat.

A file photo from one of our early visits, ~1985, when the museum was still under construction and "Twitty City" was the state's biggest self-celebratory attraction.
