As a reward for my oldest son's graduation from college, I took him to the 2014 Iron Bowl. While we were enjoying the day, we decided to stop in at the Bryant Museum. Its a very nice, small museum that is full of the historical significance of football at the University of Alabama and what the men before "The Bear"... More

You could spend a couple of hours or just a few minutes in this museum. I would recommend a walk around campus in addition to the museum visit. Lots of photos, trophies, and memorabilia for University of Alabama fans. Close by attractions also worth visiting are Coleman Coliseum (right across the road), Denny-Chimes, and Bryan-Denny Stadium. The UA campus is... More

If you are an Alabama fan or just a college football fan, this is a must see. I always make it a point to visit because they update it every year and it is neat to see the additions.

If you are ever in Tuscaloosa be sure to visit this museum. It is not large, taking less than an hour for a thorough tour. There is much history and great trivia here covering the life of Bear Bryant. Be sure to check out the Heisman Trophy for the ONLY Heisman winner that the Bear ever coached - John David... More

A must see when visiting Tuscaloosa. I was in town to catch a game and visit family. The museum was a high lite of the trip. A must see for any college football fan. The museum covered the entire Alabama football program, from inception to current day, but as the name infers, a large portion of the museum represents the... More

Wonderful presentation of Alabama's football history; mostly Bear Bryant but extending back to Alabama football's roots. A must-see while in T-Town.
