If you like country music and/or want to see a museum about an icon, stop in for an hour or so and enjoy a great museum. Not a huge museum but well done and an excellent man at the counter answered any questions you may have about Hank Williams. Great gift shop. Lots of exhibits and memorabilia and the infamous...

The museum is a must if you are a Hank fan as I am. It is on Commerce St. in the Montgomery downtown entertainment area known as "The Alley". The building is old, the displays are not fancy but the history is awesome. There are lots of sheet music copies of Hank songs, old 78 RPM and 45 singles, etc.... More

This museum is a hidden gem if you are a fan of Hank Williams. I brought my mother here when she came to Montgomery for a visit. The gentleman working the museum was so good, he gave her a personal tour. I think he was excited to have guests. Has a room full of Hank Williams memorabilia, even his car!... More

We stopped in just to see what the museum held. If you were a big Hank fan, this is interesting. Otherwise, it seemed a bit overpriced for the opportunity to walk through. You can get in to the shop and find some neats souvenirs without the tour though.

The museum is well worth stopping to see. Very nice staff & friendly they will answer all your questions and have a great gift shop there. Try and be there early as there is only metered parking out front and you're not allowed to put more money in the meter when the time is running low. I'm not sure where... More

Thank you for your review of our great Museum! Let me add that there are many parking decks surrounding us if you don't want to use the street parking with meters. Meters are only .50 per hour and you can feed it up to 2 hours. It does say not to re-feed the meters but if you need an additional... More

We did not take the "official" tour but the young woman at the desk told us several stories about Hank. I didn't realize how young he was when he died - 29! Think of what he could have accomplished if he had lived longer. If you are a Hank fan, put this on your list when you are in Montgomery.

I’m a country and western fan so my visit to the museum was fantastic. If you too are a country and western fan then I’m sure you will also enjoy the museum. There is a lot of Hank memorabilia to look at and read, they also have a very interesting video that you can sit and watch. You can’t take... More

What a nice little museum. It was laid out perfect and had tons of things to see. Tons of information is supplied and the museum staff was super nice and really really knowledgeable about Hank. My only issue is that you can't take pictures, but I understand it's their museum it's their rules.

This museum was one of the reasons we stopped in Montgomery on our vacation travels. My husband is a huge fan and he wasn't disappointed with this museum. Not recommended for kids or teens, ours was bored....lots of things to read, etc.
