“A must-do for all football fans”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

On a recent visit to Tuscaloosa, this attraction was the highlight. The museum was well done and explored the history of Alabama football. The short film on coach Bryant was informative and entertaining, and it was great to get a close look at one of the famous "Crystal Balls".
Photograpy is allowed, admission price is low---just a great little museum. One could tour it in 30 or 45 minutes, or like my family, stay an hour or two. The gift shop has a variety of Alabama memorabilia ranging in price for a dollar or two to $$$$.
Unless you are an Alabama football hater, what's not to enjoy?

“Paul "Bear" Bryant's legacy lives on...”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

Coach Bryant left an impression on this university that can only be experienced through this museum. Take time to visit and you will see why the houndstooth lives on. I promise you won't regret it.

“Great Museum”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

Compete history of Alabama football. Even if you are just a fan of football in general, you have to stop by. It's only 2 bucks a person(and half that for kids!).
