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.

The building is an 8,000 square foot exhibit hall with displays that chronicles the history of football at the University of Alabama to include photographs, video and memorabilia. Nestled between the University Hotel and the Bryant Conference Center my favorites are the Hall of Honor and the Museum Gift Shop.Worth the time if on campus or attending an event at... More

This place has so much history on Alabama Football and Bear Bryant. We really enjoyed learning more about an icon we grew up with.

Alabama fans can absorb the history and the people that have made Crimson Tide Football a national name. Visitors can stroll through the building and gain an understanding of why Bama is so loved by most Alabamians.

I guess a University is obligated to have a museum to one of the greatest coaches in history, and this is it. Small admission price (which is optional if I recall correctly). Exhibits of a few artifacts and lot's of pictures. Located between the hotel and conference center. If you're attending something at either one of those places, this is... More

This museum holds everything an Alabama athletic aficionado could imagine. Trophies, memorabilia, videos...it's all here. Sports are a huge part of what UA has accomplished and what it has to be proud of. Im glad they have established this museum to pay tribute to a remarkable history of athletic excellence. Anyone who knows Alabama's reputation in athletics needs to visit.

Any Bama fan this is a must see; enjoy yourself and take some time to take it all in; there is a lot to see and appreciate; the history of Alabama football is great; make sure you use the coupon to Alumni Hall store for great deals and if your military you get extra.$$ off.

This museum has a friendly staff. It is small, and quite frankly I expected something bigger. It is a place you must visit if you go to Tuscaloosa, and it does showcase Bear Bryant memorabilia, but it does have much more. It also has a small store for shirts, hats and stuffed animals for purchase. I wish some of the... More
