  • We evacuated Naples, FL to get out of the way of hurricane Irma so we spent 9 days in Ozark, AL. On the last day we took a day trip to Troy, AL to see the pioneer Museum and the $9 per person senior r...  more »
  • We stopped by to visit the past. This a great place to see all different relics of the past to include the moon tree, a true rarity. We enjoyed our visit here and the tour through the past.  more »
  • The pioneer museum was gorgeous when we went! There was so much to look at! An old church with an old piano it. Some old houses and a bridge. My entire family loved it!  more »
  • I had been seeing the Pioneer Museum of Alabama for several years on trips I would take to South Alabama but never had an opportunity to stop. My wife and I love to visit places like this because we love the history and the things that can be learned. So we were coming through Troy, AL today 5/20/17 and decided to stop. They have an inside museum and also the grounds with lots of historical buildings and an old locomotive. We paid the $10 each for the facility. They have a museum inside that was filled with a lot of very interesting things and some great history. The grounds were a different story. They have a pretty decent collection of historical buildings on the property along with a covered bridge and an old locomotive. We enjoyed the inside, but were very disappointed with the grounds. More than half of the buildings were closed and locked so that you could not even look inside. I understand that volunteers are hard to come by these days, but they could have at least opened the buildings and roped off so that you could not go in, but could look inside. We were not the only people that were disappointed, we spoke with another couple who felt the same as we did. We spent our money, and $20 may not be that big of a deal to everyone, but I didn't plan on just wasting $20. I have been to Burritt Museum in Huntsville, AL. Save your money by not stopping at the Pioneer Museum and make the trip to the Burritt Museum. They have a lot more buildings and they are all open. On another note, the staff that we encountered at the Pioneer Museum we're very nice. All in all, a disappointing visit.
  • Very nice place. My boys had a good time there
  • This is a wonderful place to stop and enjoy the day learning, walking on the nature trails, and experiencing the simple life! The Children's Interactive Room was a big hit! loved it!
  • The people are wonderful and extremely helpful. The museum is beautiful and lots of history.
  • We came on a Tuesday so some things weren't open, which is maybe why. But in a lot of the buildings that weren't open, or around little corners they just had junk and garbage stuffed. A lot big metal things, such as the stationary steam engine, are just left out in the open to rust and decay. Inside has some cool stuff and some of the buildings outside are pretty cool. Definitely cool to go to once. They don't take great care of a lot of the things they have
