The Alabama Music Hall of Fame, which has been closed for several years, has now re-opened to the public for tours. The Hall of Fame, which has been plagued by financial woes, is now on able to operate on a limited basis.
Struggles to stay open
The Alabama Music Hall of Fame had been plagued by financial woes for several years, which had kept the museum closed for at least the last couple of years. Chief among these was the loss of funding from the state of Alabama. The financial status of the Museum changed due to a grant from the state of Alabama.
Decision to reopen
After receiving the grant from the state of Alabama, the museum decided to reopen. The museum first looked at opening in other cities, but then decided to reopen at the facility that had already been built in Tuscumbia. On October 27th, 2013, the announcement was made at the museum would be open Wednesday through Saturday of each week.
A look at exhibits in the museum
The reason is home to several exhibits that feature the history of Alabama music. Chief among these is the Hall of Fame, which features great Alabama musicians such as The Blind Boys of Alabama and the Alabama band from Fort Payne. An exhibit on the impact of Muscle Shoals in the music industry is also featured.
The Alabama Music Hall of Fame and Museum is a great place to visit to learn about Alabama music. It is located in downtown Tuscumbia.
