Looking for a free or cheap attraction to visit and spend our morning before we headed home and make the most of our trip to town and over night stay for a concert. The gift shop has some great Alabama themed unique items and they...More
We visited on a rainy sightseeing day and were glad we did. From the formation of the land to present day Alabama, it is all under one roof.
This is the best "little" museum we had ever seen. The exhibits, movies, the artifacts and chronology...More
Incidentally, the Archives & Museum is also 5*, with a balanced view of such historical topics as the Civil War, Reconstruction, Segregation. Park across the street free, also not easy downtown. Not sure the Bullock Museum in Austin, TX is as balanced.
Me and my wife stopped by on the way home from the beach to purchase a few bicentennial shirts for the school she works at. We love art museums so the gallery was pleasant enough. The Portraits of Alabama exhibit right now though is very...More

You will need at least 1.5 hours plus to really be able to get the most out of this!

The building is gorgeous; created in stunning white Alabama Marble, and the first (ground) floor is mildly interesting, but not thrilling. The second floor is where the meat is at, especially the Alabama voices exhibit. Well laid out, modern, informative, going through the history of...More
Interesting exhibit on the state's history -- except that they try to gloss over almost all of the events associated with the civil rights movement. The final section of the exhibit ranges from 1945 to 2000 -- a much too broad time frame to depict...More
We visited the museum, and we were really surprised! The exhibition Voices of Alabama is very good presented, and you can spend easily more than 2 hours. The short movies help to understand special topics in the history of Alabama.
We enjoyed very much.

Hi Terrie! Thanks for your question. While we do not rent wheelchairs, our entire building is wheelchair accessible. When you arrive, pull into the circular drive at our rear entrance on Adams Avenue. There is a ramp there and you can drop your father off right at our door. Free parking is available in a lot directly across the street from the rear entrance. After signing in at the front desk and picking up a museum guide, an elevator will take you to the Museum of Alabama on the second floor. Convenient seating can be found throughout the building and exhibit galleries. I hope that you and your father will visit soon! Please let us know if we can be of any additional assistance.
