We enjoy exploring some of the smaller, local attractions when traveling so checked out this museum with another couple while vacationing at Orange Beach, AL. We met a lady there who was very knowledgable about everything "gulf coast" and had a great conversation with her. Turns out she was very involved in putting the museum together with lots of Walker... More

My wife and I like history. We visited this museum which is only open two days a week - Tuesday and Thursday. It covers the original inhabitants of the area - Indians. It then covers the fishing and shrimping industry before the tourist industry took over. Also what happened here during World War Two. Well worth stopping and enjoying these... More

This museum is in an old one room school house that has been moved to this location. It is a free attraction. There is a lot of information about hurricanes, boating, and there are items from the old schoolhouse. The person working is very knowledgeable and willing to answer questions.

Just happened up on this little museum and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is located in an old, one room school house that has been restored. It is jam packed with a large variety of local articles and artifacts. The curator was very informed and was able to answer all our questions. There was no admission fee required only a donation.

We recently enjoyed a visit to the Indian & Sea Museum in Orange Beach. The building and the displays are interesting for anyone with an interest in history. The lady who runs the museum is a wealth of information. The museum is currently open all year on Tuesday and Thursday; during part of the year, it is also open on... More

The museum is a fantastic place to spend an hour or two learning about the history of this little town now called Orange Beach. The museum is run by a lady who grew up here and whose family was one of the founding families in the area. The Walkers pretty much started the fishing business and the Calloways were the... More
