Overview

Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery, AL is a favorite destination for music fans. He is a treasure to the City of Montgomery and the State of Alabama, and we are paying tribute to the life and accomplishments of this magnificent legend whose name survives in a way that is unique in the history of Music. It is amazing after so many years that there are still things to be said...song to be sung. Year by year since Hank's death in 1953, the real impact his songs made on American Music becomes more evident. His lifelong fans continue, and new admirers are added with each generation. Hank Williams crowded a lot of living into twenty-nine years. It is safe to say, perhaps Hank Williams said all he had to say. We are proud to say that all of the artifacts are authentic. Exhibits include the 1952 Cadillac in which he died, 17 stage suits including Nudie , custom made boots, cowboy hats, tie collection, furniture, portraits, records, horse saddle, piano,awards, rare photos, family history and personal film footage. Experience the history of the first country music superstar and see how Hank Williams transformed country music and sowed the seeds of what was to become American Music, blues, rockabilly and even rock and roll.

The museum was nice enough, but there is no photography allowed inside the museum. I was disappointed to know that we could not take any pictures...for the price of admission they could at least include a picture of you with his car😟. Maybe they could...More

We stopped in Montgomery to stay one night, and wanted to take in some of the local scenery and museums while there. We stopped off at this museum since my husband is a country music fan. The entry charge is $10, which isn't that much,...More

So this Museum is located in a very non descript building in Montgomery it almost looks like an old school store front. They have a nice variety of artifacts and a cute little gift shop of items for a Hank Williams fan. You can't take...More

The museum is packed full of Hank memorabilia. It is worth a stop. Yet, the cost is a bit high at $10 a person. Bring quarters for street parking.

My family loved this museum. The memorabilia was amazing. While the rule is no photograpy, the staff allowed me to snap a picture of my children discovering the juke box. They don't often sit mesmerized for anything. It was a treat watching them discover this...More

This small museum provides a lot of information about HW but is a bit pricey and small. The 1952 Caddy convertible is spectacular. Also seeing and hearing some of his early songs and Opry appearances make it worthwhile. Their a little short on his personal...More

First the Hank Williams Museum is conveniently located downtown and very easy to get to. It was a fairly small museum with some interesting items (and some items that made little sense to me...oh well). Everyone was nice and the gift shop had some fun...More

If you're a fan of the older style country music and Hank Williams was your favorite then this is something you'd love to see. However as amazing as this place is you can not take pictures inside the museum. But it's something to see, you...More
