‪We stopped by this museum as part of a quick history tour of the state capitol complex - in addition to the Museum of Alabama in this building, the First White House of the Confederacy is next door, and the state capitol itself is across the street.

As state museums go, this is a fairly small one, but it presents a good deal of history in a relatively small amount of space. The building itself started out as the state's World War Memorial and indeed the building still carries that title above the doors on one side. Inside the first floor are busts and sculptures dating back to this original role - indeed many people today may not recognize who, for example, Richard Hobson or William Oates are, but others like Booker T. Washington are perhaps better known.

The museum exhibits are on the second floor. The logical starting place is, "The Land of Alabama," located in a small room and devoted to the natural history of the state, broken down by region. Next door is another smallish room describing "the First Alabamians" which describes the Native American residents from their entry in the region some 12,000 or so years ago to their ultimately disasterous interactions with European explorers and settlers entering what is now Alabama.

This leads to the main exhibit in the museum titled "Alabama Voices" which provides the history of the state from the 18th to the 21st century - from the contentious early days when the English, French, and Spanish each staked claim to at least parts of the future state to the cotton economy, Civll War, industialization, two World Wars, the civil rights movement, and even the space race.

One final exhibit space, "Alabama Treasure," houses a temporary exhibit on Alabama's role in World War I which provides a fascinating in depth look at the state's role in the conflict from Alabama men and women serving overseas to industry in the state supporting the war effort.

Throughout the exhibits, there are information panels, videos, interactive displays, photos and artwork, and artifacts to chart and explain the story of Alabama and its people.

We spent about an hour here and finished up in the large gift shop on the first floor where there was a large selection of books on various subjects related to Alabama history as well as the usual souvenirs, prints, clothing, etc. Admission and parking are free. Overall, it is definitely worth a stop, but as we have seen bigger and better museums in other states, we had to dock the museum one "ball." It is still very good though.‬

‪We were delighted with this museum, it gave us information and plenty of things to think about and discuss. Well set out, informative and easy to look at, at our pace. Would recommend for teens upwards, some of the younger children in here were bored.‬

‪Having played in many concerts in the front of the ARCHIVES I can say I really appreciate this grand building. I took California guests there and they were enthralled with the third floor particularly .It begins with the Giant wooly Mammouth and moves thru then eons of time to modern times..it will hold your interest as it has the latest technology displays and objects...The 3rd floor was designed in cooperation with the Smithsonian in Washington D.C. You can expect excellence and a good use of your travel time.‬

‪The museum is a nice mix between what you probably already know, and a marvelous display of what you probably don't. You'll know some of the famous faces and names on display, but features on the state's founders, portraits of unknown people, and exhibits on location, topography, and Native American history can define the heart of what you learn. A must visit for history and museum buffs.‬

‪By the time I'm actually writing this, the incredible display, in one place, of all six of Alabama's state constitutions are probably tucked safely away. We were very lucky to see this rare and special exhibit. Not to worry, the rest of the museum is very interesting and well presented.‬

‪Driving through Montgomery one day we only had time to visit three or four places. One of the ones we chose was this museum and it turned out to be a great choice. It was a wonderful history of Alabama, both the land and the people. And you can’t beat the price, they don’t charge anything. Absolutely a must see.‬

‪My son and I went here to see the state Constitutions on display and also went through the museum exhibits. There are some great displays about the early history of the area and about the history of modern Alabama. The displays of military memorabilia are so well done in glass cases, where one can get a great view of the items from all sides.‬

‪We visited this museum on a wet day while on a fly drive holiday through Alabama . Really interesting place, and an excellent insight into how the state has developed from the pre settler says right up to modern times. Definitely worth a visit , probably 1-2,hour duration . Free car parking close by too.‬

‪Nous hésitions à rentrer dans ce musée mais vu la chaleur nous pensions juste nous rafraîchir.
La visite étant si intéressante et ludique que nous y avons passé presque 2 heures .
On apprend tant de choses sur les richesses de l’Alabama ,sur la vie des indiens,sur les immigrants venus s’installer dans ces terres ainsi que sur les guerres ayant eut lieu.‬
