“come remember the father of contemporary country music”
Hiram "Hank" Williams career began at the age of 14 by winning a talent show at the Empire Theater in Montgomery Alabama in 1937 with his original tune WPA BLUES, the rest is musical history. Containing the most complete collection of memorabilia, the Official Hank Williams Museum is located in Downtown Montgomery where Hank lived from 1937 - 1953. Come and visit the place where the man who left his mark on the Musical world, will inevitably leave his mark on you. The Museum houses Hank's 1952 Cadillac in which he made his final journey, along with clothing, albums and more. Oakwood Cemetery, which is the resting place of Hank and Audrey Williams, is only five minutes away of the Museum.
We enjoyed the visit.
Came out of there with some interesting things, from picking thru free vintage mags and posters from the 50's and 60's to purchasing "I ❤️HANK WILLIAMS" bumper stickers and magnets
This is a cool little mom and pop museum of country music legend Hank Williams. The crown jewel of the collection is the vehicle he passed away in at age 29. I went through in less than an hour, I think 45-90 minutes is perfect for this stop. It felt nice to support a piece of important local history.
