The Museum shares a beautiful stately building, built in 1940, with the Alabama Department of Archives and History. The museum is located just across the street from the Alabama State Capitol in downtown Montgomery and tells the story of Alabama's past - from prehistoric times to the present.
Some of the most significant permanent exhibitions at the Museum are The Land of Alabama, about the natural resources and geology that affected the state's history, and The First Alabamians, a diorama about fourteen thousand years of Native American culture, featuring colorful murals and many original artifacts.
The centerpiece of the Museum is the exhibit Alabama Voices, which describes dramatic events in Alabama history from the early 1700s to the modern era. The Museum holds over 800 artifacts, hundreds of documents and images, and hosts twenty-two contemporary audiovisual programs about the wars over land, the cotton economy, the bloody Civil War, world wars, the raise of civil rights and much more.
