TUSCUMBIA – The Alabama Music Hall of Fame hosted a grand reopening of its completely renovated gift shop last week. The project started in March, and the museum decided to work with all local contractors on updating the flooring, lighting, and custom-built displays for merchandise.
The museum on US 72 in Tuscumbia was built in 1990, and these are the first design changes to the original shop. All new merchandise fills the shop including music themed books, toys, and instruments for children of all ages.
“The new store has a little something for everyone,” said Executive Director, Sandra Burrough. “We have fun new trivia games, apparel, novelty items, and an entire section just for Christmas.”
A few special touches have been added to the area including large print photos from the current Dick Cooper exhibit placed throughout the gift shop. Artist Shawn Doughty’s hand-drawn collage featuring highlights of the museum is also hanging above a section dedicated to the merchandise with his artwork.
The Hall of Fame also will be launching an online store where anyone can shop from anywhere! Find the link at www.alamhof.org.
