Situated right next door to Hotel Capstone, the Bryant Museum is a treasure trove of information and memorabilia on the Alabama football dynasty, from the outset in 1892 until today. As the name suggests, there is a huge amount of information and things to see from the time when Paul W. "Bear" Bryant coached the Crimson Tide (inlcuding replays of... More

i do not understand why there is not more about the real life of this coach, and not just his teams.

What a great visit. The museum is simply a must see if you love college football. Roll Tide! Great tribute to the greatest coach to ever walk the side line.

If you are a college football fan you will enjoy this, if you are a Bama fan you will love it. I have visited this museum many times and always find something new. On football Saturdays it is more crowded but still worth it and the cost is low. Not just for fans of Alabama but each time I have... More

If you are in Tuscaloosa with a little time to kill this is a good place to go. It is very inexpensive (if you have your alumni membership card it is free!) and totally an on-your-own thing, so you can take as much or as little time as you like. It starts at the very beginnings of Bama football and... More

Needed to give the family a driving break. Best value for under ten dollars and one hour of your time. I am not even a football or UA fan and I really enjoyed it. Great gift shop, nice video. Easy to find and can park right in front. Found this via trip advisor and couldn't agree more with all the... More

The entry fee is nominal and the history is priceless! Even though the museum is as much about all of the coaches in Alabama history, Bear is prominently portrayed and it was a joy to see all the history that the school has with its football program, Don't miss the gift shop as prices were actually fair and they had...

If you are ever on campus and have a little time I would recommend this for all college football fans. $2 for adults and $1 for kids, how can you go wrong? Rich history, great experience.

This muse is naturally for football fans. It is interesting for guest form Alabama as well as family from out of town. The guided tours that include the stadium are a wonderful addition to the museum
