Wow, what an experience!

If you enjoy history you will enjoy the Paul W. Bryant Museum. You will see actual items that Bear Bryant had in his office and hear audio of him as well.

Give yourself about an hour to visit here. There is lots of cool memorabilia to look at. Check in advance, as they will offer autographs.

This is a must see if you have never been. It's cool to almost "go back in time" as you start at the right side of the room and make your way around. Then watch the short video in the small theater after. Overall great experience! ROLL TIDE

If you're an Alabama fan, of course you'll go. For football fans, it's worth a visit. It's informative and well laid out. Roll Tide! 16 and counting.

What can I say but if you are in Tuscaloosa for a game or just passing thru you owe it to yourself to check out the museum. The history of Alabama football is displayed in all its' glory.

We visited the museum, I learned some interesting facts abour Bear Bryant that I didn't know. It is good for children to go and see if they want to learn about the Alabama Football program.

Highly recommend this museum for all college football fans. Well designed museum that celebrates the life and career of an amazing coach. The displays draw you in and the amount of memorabilia is stunning. The entry fee is very minimal - literally only a few dollars. Probably the best value in the entire town!!!

Very worth the time. We were from Indiana and enjoyed the history and all the old gear in the museum. Staff were super friendly. Clean. Worth your visit while on campus.

Visited the museum during a recent football game weekend. The museum has displays covering not only Coach Bryant's life and times before and during his days at Alabama, it also covers Alabama football in general. It contains a display with his desk, chair and couch from his office. Trophies from various bowl victories as well as some of his famous... More
