  • Let me start by saying I am not all that interested in natural history or museums devoted to them. I have a friend with whom I travel who likes them, which is how I end up visiting. That being said, I...  more »

  • This is a hidden Alabama gem. I was born and raised here and had no idea this existed. The live animal show was fun and informative. The exhibits are clean and tastefully done. They even have Egyptian mummies! Who knew?? Nice, shady grounds with picnic tables if you want to pack a lunch. My only suggestion would be to hire a PR person and get the word out about this place! Offer summer camps perhaps?? Definitely get into Birmingham Parents magazine. People (in Alabama especially) should know this place exists. Great little day trip for kids and adults alike.
  • I remember coming here as a kid and enjoy taking my son here now. It has held up well. They are currently doing some renovations to the entrance but the exhibits are still great!
  • A nice little museum. Very inexpensive and fun. My kids, hubby and I really enjoyed the exhibits.
  • This is a nice museum with decent exhibits and an appropriate size for me to complete all its exhibition in a little over half a day. I like when my ticket gets fully paid off by visiting all I want to see in a museum. Great museum in the county.
  • I was so pleasantly surprised at the quality and impressiveness of the museum. All of my children, aged 5, 3 and 1, were totally immersed in every display and interactive activity. My 5 year old's favorite area was the caves of Alabama and the dinosaur display. There was a full stegosaurus skeleton, a triceratops skull and a full scale Pteranodon model. My three year old was completely fascinated by the ancient Egypt area and asked me questions about the "mommies" all the way back to Birmingham. All in all, I give this museum five huge stars and plan on going back several times this year!
