Museum of Alabama

Proud member of the Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce

Located in downtown Montgomery, the Museum of Alabama is the only destination where you can explore Alabama's past from prehistory to the present. The Museum is located at the Alabama Department of Archives and History (ADAH), the nation's oldest state-funded, independent archival and historical agency. More than 800 artifacts, hundreds of images and documents, and twenty-two audiovisual programs tell the story of struggles over the land, the rise of a cotton economy, the Civil War, industrialization, world wars, civil rights, the race to the moon, and more. Voices taken from diaries, letters, speeches, songs, and other sources convey the experiences of Alabamians who lived through and shaped the history of these periods.
