“Good collection, average presentation”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2012

Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame is a unique collection of Alabama musician's works and impact on a national level. Particularly enjoyed the Family Tree of Jazz Music. The day we attended there was not even music playing as we self-toured through the museum. Thankfully, we were the only two there, otherwise we would have been stepping over others as the museum is small and tightly laid-out.

“Pay extra for the guided tour”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2011

We paid extra for the guided tour which was well worth it to here the guides anecdotes.
I hadn't appreciated before I went that the museum celebrates Alabama Musicians only, but it was very informative and entertaining
