We were delighted with this museum, it gave us information and plenty of things to think about and discuss. Well set out, informative and easy to look at, at our pace. Would recommend for teens upwards, some of the younger children in here were bored.

Having played in many concerts in the front of the ARCHIVES I can say I really appreciate this grand building. I took California guests there and they were enthralled with the third floor particularly .It begins with the Giant wooly Mammouth and moves thru then eons of time to modern times..it will hold your interest as it has the latest technology displays and objects...The 3rd floor was designed in cooperation with the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. You can expect excellence and a good use of your travel time.

The museum is a nice mix between what you probably already know, and a marvelous display of what you probably don't. You'll know some of the famous faces and names on display, but features on the state's founders, portraits of unknown people, and exhibits on location, topography, and Native American history can define the heart of what you learn. A must visit for history and museum buffs.

By the time I'm actually writing this, the incredible display, in one place, of all six of Alabama's state constitutions are probably tucked safely away. We were very lucky to see this rare and special exhibit. Not to worry, the rest of the museum is very interesting and well presented.

Driving through Montgomery one day we only had time to visit three or four places. One of the ones we chose was this museum and it turned out to be a great choice. It was a wonderful history of Alabama, both the land and the people. And you can’t beat the price, they don’t charge anything. Absolutely a must see.
