As a huge Alabama fan since the 70s, finally being able to go to Fort Payne (their himetown) to pay tribute their successes, was a dream come true! If you are an Alabama fan, you will find the museum informational, as well as, enjoyable. Everything you've ever wanted to know about Alabama can be found out here. Not to mention,... More

They have recently updated the museum. If you like the band it is worth visiting. The ladies inside the gift shop are very helpful.

The biggest part of the fan club museum appears to be the gift shop. The place definitely could use some renovations. I think they recently updated to sign in the parking lot so maybe this will be the beginning of more renovation. The museum itself is interesting, filled with Alabama memorabilia and worth the admission charge.

Been there more than a few times. It appears to be deteriorating steadily. Lack of visitors I suspect. It could use some renovation and there is a smell in the theater. Fort Payne should have pride in the Group Alabama as well as the Group having pride in themselves. This place does not fully display that pride.

Last time I visited was 1985. I am so glad it's still open and i could share it with my son! Super nice people there. Loved talking Atlanta braves baseball with the lady in the gift shop! When she found out we were on a minor leAgue baseball road trip, she gave my 14 year old son the cd with... More

I hadn't been to the Fan Club and Museum in years. I happen to be driving back through the Fort Payne area July 4 weekend so I decided to stop. I didn't seem to be the hot attraction it once was. Probably because the band isn't touring like they once did either. Once inside we shopped around a bit. I... More

The building looks old and has water stained ceiling tiles and there is dust every where. Who takes care of the place and cleans the awards??? No one that's who!! The Lady in the gift shop was very nice. Besides her we were the only ones in the place. Put some money into fixing the place up and you might... More
