Supporters of the Alabama Music Hall of Fame have set a target date to reopen the tourist attraction.
The Music Hall of Fame board members hope to reopen the facility in Tuscumbia by Oct. 17.
State Tourism Director Lee Sentell said the date is one day before the opening of the documentary "Muscle Shoals" in Birmingham. Sentell said Oct. 17 is a tentative date that could change.
Alabama Music Hall of Fame board members say they're exploring options to help the organization survive. Board members told the TimesDaily of Florence (http://bit.ly/16GvmLE) that they're considering four options to support the museum which has been closed since November. Organizers say the first option is to combine the attraction with an official state welcome center. The second option is to split the memorabilia and distribute it throughout the state.
