Outside on the sidewalk, visitors can feel the rhythm. From the boogie woogie beginnings of Clarence “Pinetop” Smith to the velvet crooning of Nat King Cole, legendary jazz greats are immortalized in the Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame, within the historic Carver Theatre. Interactive exhibits also recall the contributions of Sun Ra and His Intergalactic Space Arkestra, along with Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton and Erskine Hawkins, all with Alabama ties. The renovated Carver Theatre was prominent among a half dozen Birmingham theaters that admitted black patrons to movies and live entertainment during the era of segregation. Open Tuesday- Saturday, 10am- 5pm. General admission to the museum is $2.00 per person; Admission and Guided Tour $5.
