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.

My husband's father was a big Hank Williams fan and, this was literally next door to our hotel. Wonderful tribute and we learned a lot about a legend we thought we already knew!

We stopped to see the Hank Williams Museum in Montgomery. The museum is very good and has many items that Hank owned during his like. If you are a country music fan put this on your bucket list.

We really enjoyed this great museum. The letters, artifacts and Hank’s music in the background made this a must stop on our trip. The Hank Williams story is an extraordinary one and this museum gives an honest portrayal of his life and times.

Sobering to see how talented Hank Williams was to have accomplished so much before his death at age 29. Lot of actual clothing and personal belongings on display as well as his baby blue Cadillac convertible. Well worth visiting.

Did not know much about Hank Williams. Beautiful car. Did not know why he died so young until visited here.

Thanks for visiting. There's more to learn when you have the " in person" experience with Hank's life and career rather than just reading about it.
