The Alabama Music Hall of Fame is back open to the public.

In true Muscle Shoals fashion, some of the area's biggest names in music helped reopen the museum on Friday.

Several hundred people gathered and took part in the ceremony, including local lawmakers.

The international release of the documentary "Muscle Shoals" has helped put the Shoals back in the music scene, and re-opening the hall of fame will help the community and state continue to share their story to visitors worldwide.

State Tourism Director Lee Sen tell said, "We believe the hall of fame is reborn with a new energy and with a new excitement. The state tourism department is certainly going to be aggressive in marketing the attraction and we've got some other ideas that we're not ready to talk about just yet that are going to be very positive for the whole area."

The hall of fame closed its doors last year due to financial problems.
