Hands down, the Hank Williams Museum is a hoot for his die-hard fans or for the casual visitor. Considering his career lasted only five years and he died at 29 in 1952, his spirit resonates in this funky and entertaining place with dusty-rose-colored walls and 35 tall display cabinets. Located in downtown Montgomery, both the museum's proprietors and trusty volunteer, Terry Faust, seem to channel Williams whose recordings play non-stop throughout the museum.
Montgomery is the seat of the civil rights movement, home to the Dexter Avenue King Memorial Baptist Church and steeped with enough entertainment and cultural venues to keep most visitors happy. But for those wanting an offbeat experience, the Hank Williams Museum is a must-see.
