Prior to my visit, I read every review on Trip Advisor about the place. Yes, EVERY. First, the museum has something for everyone. But I was really touched by the dresser that belonged to Hank and Audrey. With monogrammed handles. I delighted in flipping thru a notebook of various odds and ends..hotel receipts. Beth was a sincere and helpful woman,... More

You can see all kinds of memorabilia including letters between hank and his wife, hank's childhood couch, instruments and outfits that hank wore. You aren't allowed to take pictures in the museum and it's small.

HI Holly, Thanks for the 2nd review on our wonderful 6000 sq ft Museum of Hank Williams. We can actually fit about 185 people inside the exhibit area and 250 people on the second floor. We don't look at it as being small because there is the Cadillac sitting here, furniture, 38 showcases and room to move around. Now, the... More

This was my second time visiting the museum. I took my parents who had never been before. My father preferred the boyhood home in Georgiana, mainly because the staff person there was so knowledgeable and friendly. However, any Hank fan must visit, if only to see the car that he died in. The museum really should consider permitting photographs, at... More

I wasn't expecting much from this museumm, but boy was I surprised! It;s very interesting and a couple of hours or more could easily be spent there. Many of the items are on loan from Hank Williams, Jr. and also many donated items by friends, family, and fans. The light blue Cadillac that he died in is on display, many... More

Thank you for such an awesome review! I have taken the flowers down from Hank and Audrey's grave site. They had been up for a few months and do get faded and worn. We try our best to keep the grave looking beautiful for the fans to enjoy. Hope you will visit us again soon! More

This was an awesome museum. He had some great things to remember Hank by. The most remarkable thing I remember was Hank's car that he died in was there, but the only thing was you couldn't take pictures in the museum or of the car unless you paid $200 to become a member, if Hank was still alive he would...

Hi! thank you for a wonderful review! We think it's a pretty cool place to see. If you join the Lifetime Membership which is $200, we take a photo of you standing next to the Cadillac. We don't charge a fee to have a picture of the Cadillac. It's an added bonus with your support of the Museum. This is... More

Hello Carrie S., If you love Hank Williams, you have to love this Museum. It is the most complete collection that you will ever see of Hank Williams. I'm sorry you and your friend were disappointed during your visit. I wish you had mentioned it to me. The Museum can hardly be called "very small" when it covers 6000 sq... More

This museum has everything you would hope to see concerning Hank Williams. I visited with my parents and we did not know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised. We spent about 1 1/2 hours looking at all of the collection. The center of the room and collection is the Baby Blue Cadillac that He made his last ride in.... More

We really enjoyed going through the museum. There were tons of memorabilia on Hank, Hank Jr, Audrey and the rest of the family and friends. You are not allowed to take pictures while inside. Would have liked a few of those. $1 off discount for military.

Hi and thank you for the nice review! We do offer discounts so I'm not sure how it got missed. It is discounted on the admission ticket only-not in the gift shop. You must ask for the discounts. We offer AAA, seniors and most of all, our men and women serving our Country! If you would like to order something... More

It is a small museum, but of course Hank lived a short life. Bought a few souvenirs in the gift shop. I wanted to see the one in Georgiana and see where he is buried, but we were short on time.

Thank you for saying we have nice memorabilia. The "over 1500" items in the Hank Williams Museum are extremely valuable and treasured. I wish you'd taken the 5 minutes to visit the statue and grave of Hank and Audrey. Please visit us again when you have more time. More
