Few families have had such a major impact on country music as the Williamses. This 5,000 square foot major exhibition examines the personal lives of Hank Williams and Hank Williams Jr. and explores the dynamics that inspired some of the most influential country music ever recorded.
See the connections between these iconic figures and their creative heirs and discover how American music continues to be measured by the standards they set. To tell the story, Hank Williams Jr., Jett Williams and members of the Williams family have offered over 200 rare artifacts never seen by the public, enabling the Museum to create an unforgettably compelling saga of love, heartache and redemption. The voices and music of all family members are heard throughout the exhibit. This major exhibition will present an intimate, behind-the-scenes portrait of a great American musical dynasty. Come learn more about the family at the foundation of country music.
