NASHVILLE, Tenn. (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum is included in a new online exhibition called Google Cultural Institute.

The museum and Google say in a news release the exhibition offers interactive experiences from 60 cultural institutions. Google says it allows viewers to experience the best in dance, music, opera and more.

The Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum's 2008-09 exhibition "Family Tradition: The Williams Family Legacy" is included in the project, displaying previously unavailable images provided by the Hank Williams family.

Hank Williams Jr. 2015 tour brought him to the Verizon Theatre at Grand Prairie in October.

Museum CEO Kyle Young called the inclusion of the Williams exhibit in the Google project a "game-changer" that allows a story set over several generations to be told around the world and beyond the life of the exhibit.
