Small and quaint. Mostly videos and reading about the band. Does not take long and I would recommend it. But. You will not be blown away. If you're NOT a country music or Alabama fan, skip it.

We traveled with our motorcycle club from Nashville only to arrive at the club to find that most of the Alabama band's collection was in Nashville!! How ironic. However, we were allowed free admission and still enjoyed a great exhibit. Anxious to return with our...More
