The Cook Museum of Natural Science is currently under construction in downtown Decatur. The new 60,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility will serve the people of North Alabama and the Southeast as a legitimate educational destination as well as a premier tourism attraction. The Museum will be an interactive immersion into North American Biomes, from deserts to oceans, to arctic tundra to hardwood forests. Each exhibit will be a part of a narrative explaining how the natural world works. Key features of the new Museum will include: Educational programs, live animals & aquariums, mounted wildlife from across North America, collections of rocks minerals, fossils, shells & coral, native plant landscaping, café with outdoor patio, three classrooms, theater, and museum store. The projected opening is late 2017.
