This is a good museum to visit. It is interesting to both adults and teenagers. It can easily be seen within an hour. We stopped before our afternoon college tour. This was a good way to start the day at UA.

Passing thru Tuscaloosa we stopped by the museum to check it out. It was a great experience from walking in the front door. It was especially fun for my 11 year old son who soaked up every second. The museum is a great place to learn about the history of the Alabama football program from its inception to the present.... More

As a former graduate and Alabama native, it is a must for all Bama and Bryant fans. It is a walk down memory lane with great memorabilia and videos

I have visited the museum many times. It's almost a tradition to go in when in T-Town. Walk around and see the history of the greatest football coach ever. He taught the boys so much more than how to play football. You can see the National Championship trophies along with many other bowl and SEC winning trophies. Bear Bryant's desk... More

We spent an early afternoon walking on a self guided tour through a small museum in Tuscaloosa, honoring a coaching great. It is located right on the University of Alabama campus and is easy to find. It depicts Paul Bryant's life and coaching experience with the Crimson Tide. There are lots of bits of history here, along with an area... More

Inexpensive entry price is great for families. Basically has showcases of memorabilia was tags for description. No tour guide so go at your own pace. Really shows the whole history of Alabama football, not just the Bear years. Has some neat stuff but could use more if someone just has stuff stored in the attic.

The museum was nicely done but probably only of interest to die hard college football fans. Did make me wonder why John David Crow's Heisman trophy is in this museum and not one at Texas A&M?

This museum is a must see for Alabama fans. Lots of history and an affordable souvenier shop. Don't forget to visit the quad!
