“Disappointing for a museum”
Review of Fairhope Museum

Fairhope Museum
Ranked #3 of 31 things to do in Fairhope

Reviewed September 17, 2013

The museum's emphasis is displaying average possessions of some of the political families in Fairhope. You might see a sampler stitched by the granddaughter of one of the council members or perhaps a soup bowl once owned by the great aunt of a former mayor. Not at all interesting or informative-a waste of time.

You should visit the museum while in Fairhope. It will tell the story of how Fairhope was formed and who were the major players who built the town in the early days.

My husband went twice. It gives a good overview of the town history. It is an artist's enclave so there were some beautiful sculptures on display as well.

Very nice museum filled with Fairhope history. The men we spoke to inside the museum were very friendly and knowledgeable. Fairhope is a neat little town and should be on your list of places to stop.

Fairhope has so much to offer, it would be easy to skip this stop. Don't. Come inside and let the talented guides tell you the story of Fairhope. The pottery exhibit on now is worth the trip. Be sure to see the wood sculptures of a local artist. You can spend 10 minutes or 10 hours and learn even more about this gem of a city.
