Coming November 17, John Wayne fans will be invited to view never-before-seen memorabilia, iconic film props, behind-the-scenes glimpses into John Wayne’s private life, and more with the exclusive exhibit John Wayne: The Genuine Article.

As an iconic figure in American history, Wayne’s legacy as an actor and family man are kept within his personal archive, where visitors are able to get an in-depth look, learn the backstories behind Wayne’s upbringing and his growth into the lovable iconic man we know on screen, and see what he meant to his friends and family.

“It is so exciting to see my father’s world come to life for the public to experience and enjoy,” says Wayne’s son Ethan. “The holidays are always a special time for our family and Nashville is such a fun destination during the holiday season.

“We can’t wait to kick off the opening of the exhibit for families and friends to enjoy quality time together while learning about my father beyond his personas on screen in an interactive way.”

Perfect for a holiday visit, John Wayne: The Genuine Article, will be an interactive event fans will not want to miss. With the rare opportunity to explore priceless memories of never-before-seen letters, speeches, and handwritten notes, along with hundreds of priceless film props, fans of the Duke are promised a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

The exhibit will run through January 1, 2018, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center. Visit their website to plan your trip.
