The Alabama Jazz Hall of Fame makes its home in the historic Carver Theatre for the Performing Arts. Upon entering the Carver Theatre, the Museum can be seen through the etched window with the famous music and lyrics of Birmingham native Erskine Hawkins' "Tuxedo Junction". The museum honors great jazz artists with ties to the state of Alabama. While furnishing educational information, the museum is also a place for entertainment. Exhibits convey the accomplishments of the likes of Nat King Cole, Duke Ellington, Lionel Hampton and Erskine Hawkins and the music that made them famous. Within this fine musical collection, visitors travel from the beginnings of boogie woogie with Clarence "Pinetop" Smith to the jazz space journeys of Sun Ra and His Intergalactic Space Arkestra.
