MACON (WAOK/AP)-The Georgia Music Hall of Fame has closed it doors forever. The final weekend was one of the biggest of the year. The Macon museum shut its doors on Sunday. Officials say it drew more than 670 people on Sunday after attracting more than 650 people on Saturday. Ironically, poor attendance was cited as a reason for the shutdown of the museum, which was built in 1996.

The museum had been averaging fewer than 100 visitors a day until it’s final weekend.

People stood in long lines to get a look at exhibits honoring James Brown, Ray Charles, R.E.M., Alan Jackson and a variety of other musicians.
