Great little museum in downtown Montgomery. Tons of memorabilia on Hank's life, music and cultural impact. Also contains some cute boyhood items of Hank Jr. Friendly staff was eager to answer questions and provide anecdotes. Not inexpensive, but a worthwhile stop.

As the founder of so much early country no trip to Alabama is complete without a visit to the Hank museum. There were no photos allowed - a bit disappointing as his car and some of the 'Nudie suits' are remarkable. A well presented museum with genuine memorabilia - no reference to the drugs that killed him but a whole... More

Nice little museum with a lot of interesting things to see. The reason I didn't give it 5 stars wad, it wasn't very big. I wanted more.

A small museum done with lots of love and passion for the greatest singer in country music. Great little shop full of Hank goodies like shirts, vinyl and even 78s too. Not much had been added since the last time I was there but being a fan, I keep coming back. Free parking behind the Visitor Center and close to... More

This is a lovingly compiled collection of memorabilia about Hank Williams and it is easy to see the passion behind it. Although I am not a top dedicated fan, I learned a lot about Hank and the people he worked with.

This is a smaller museum, but it is PACKED with memorabilia and information about Hank's life, career, and death. I noticed some of the other reviews are not too complementary, but maybe it is because you need to do quite a bit of reading on the tour to get the whole picture, and it is pretty much a self-guided tour...

As a country music fan looking to learn more about the life and musical development of this icon, I couldn't have been more disappointed. The only element clearly communicated through the exhibit was his funeral. Not even much on the cause of death and we had to search diligently for tidbits of biographical data about his birth, marriage & family.... More

Beth P, Manager at Hank Williams Museum, responded to this review

We're very sorry that you didn't experience the fullness of this wonderful display of memorabilia. We certainly do have the cause of death on display, actually in 2 places. The Museum actually starts by stating when Hank moved to Montgomery and the talent show he won. Each display case (over 35 cases) tells the story of items inside the case.... More

The museum is a great tribute to a great artist. It is also sad to know that his life ended so young. See the actual car his was riding in when he died was very moving.
