My daughters and I were downtown and decided to go to the museum. Fascinating place. We enjoyed going back in time to see interesting articles that take us back in time. The girls laughed at some of the phones and household utensils and tools. Everyone should go there at least once. We lost all track of time and we left... More

This isn't a fancy museum, but it is definitely a must see if you are in the area. Lots of interesting items of all sorts--agricultural, musical, military, Native American, medical, sports... The museum is free but does accept donations to help keep things going. A must see place in the Opelika historic district.
