Well we all know who Paul Bear Bryant is...and there's a reason he has a museum named after him! If you're into football, Alabama, sports in general or the legend himself, visit this place!!

Huge Alabama fan so I was delighted to visit this museum. It was very informative and even my husband who is an Ole Miss fan enjoyed it. If you've got an extra hour to spend definitely with your time.

I am a fan of the Crimson Tide but did not attend school here. This was a neat actually one of the neatest sports musuems Ihave ever visited. Nice staff. Small but cool gift shop. Easily accessible. Highest quality presentation!

This is a quaint experience with a lot of history. Several video monitors didn't work. I wished some of the screens were larger and the sound louder. I liked the miniature theater area. It is inexpensive and a very nice experience.

This is a very good sports museum. Obviously, it is exclusively for Alabama football, so if you hold some prejudice you may have trouble enjoying it! Truly though, it features some great pieces of UA football history that any sports fan should find interesting to behold.

While in Tuscaloosa, take the time to visit the Bryant Museum. It gives, not only, a history of football, but also, an insight into Coach Bryant. He definitely changed college football and is one of the greatest coaches in history.
