I love the history behind the museum. Great place for kids and history lovers!
My husband and I visited Cullman, and planned to visit the museum. We checked the website and made sure of the hours (9-4). Upon arrival at 1:11 pm the doors were locked and was told that the museum was only open to 2 private parties that day. All they needed to to was indicate this on their public website.
Cool place to visit when in the area!
Lots of local information. Interesting exhibits.
Great place to bring your kids and learn the history of Cullman and the way things used to be.....back in the day.
