Follow through the years of Alabama history at this interactive museum. Located right in downtown Montgomery, the Museum of Alabama debuts a large collection or artifacts and history. Fun for all ages, explore centuries of information in this beautiful and historic building.


Alabama was the first state in the country to have a Department of Archives & History that was state-funded. While these archives were originally housed in the Alabama State Capitol Building across the street, they later moved to their current building in 1940. The building was erected using funds from the New Deal and received national attention for its grandeur. While the building has expanded over the years, the inside walls are made from locally quarried Alabama Marble from nearby Sylacauga.

There are several exhibits on display at the museum. Some are changing and others are permanent. You can walk through the building and learn about local and regional Alabama history. Discover famous Alabamian’s, learn about early settlers and find out the types of natural resources that the state has to offer.
