I expected a lot more... this was a bunch of old memorabilia that could have been displayed better. It seemed old and outdated, just not interesting. The best part was the Indian totem pole as you walk in. Hank Williams grave site nearby is free and more interesting.

How old are you honey? I am disappointed in the way that you reviewed my beautiful Museum! We are in a very old but historical building. Hank Williams has been dead 64 years so yes honey his things are old and outdated. But the displays are beautifully designed and very well kept. He had the best of the best clothing... More

HI Peggy, Thanks so much for taking time to review the Hank Williams Museum. I'm so glad you and your family had a chance to visit the memorabilia of Hank Williams. I so wish we could change the policy of photo taking but for now the rule is what it is. The gift shop has so many copyrighted art pieces... More

I'm an appreciator of Hank Williams but don't know a great deal about him or his music beyond the well known facts. I enjoyed my visit to this small museum but it is predominantly a large collection of memorabilia rather than anything hugely informative. Still it was interesting to see and gave you a feel of the man, his upbringing... More

If you’re a fan of Hank or his music, this is a great stop. If you’re not a fan, it’s 50-50. If you're not sure, you should go.

Physically it is a small place, but if you take the time to read all the information it is a great collection. You could probably spend 1-2 hours here. Make sure you understand the photography and phone rules. Many of the exibits are one of a kind and pictures/phones are not allowed inside the musuem itself (except in the lobby).... More

My lady and I walked through here while listening to the hits of Hank and learning about his background. One of the highlights has to be the Cadillac. Very impressive

The museum itself is pretty small but it is full of all kinds of artifacts and information. There are letters, furniture, guitars, a couch and a lot more!

Very nice museum, full of personal items including blue Cadillac Hank died in. A very nice and very respectful tribute to one of the greatest singer/songwriters to ever live. They have a very nice gift shop full of great collectibles at reasonable prices. Museum is definitely worth a visit if you are a music fan!

The museum is filled with donated memorabilia from the hillbilly singer's life: performing attire, home furnishings, handwritten letter and many photos, along with the 1952 baby blue Cadillac convertible Hank Williams passed away in. No outside photos are allowed: rather a shame for a $10 per person admission price. Hank Williams souvenirs are for sale, but also what I would... More
