Museum of Alabama


Visitors are invited to take a stroll through Alabama's breathtaking past in two exhibits at the Museum of Alabama at the Alabama Department of Archives and History in Montgomery. The Land of Alabama exhibit gallery features 10 murals depicting Southeastern life from the prehistoric period to the 1700s and helps visitors to understand the geological process that shaped the land we live on. Complemented by beautiful photographs and a fabulous documentary, it tells a colossal story of plate tectonics, eroding mountains and oceans that rise and fall to make up Alabama's geologically-diverse structure. The First Alabamians gallery follows the procession of Alabama Indians from their arrival about 12,000 B.C., toward the end of the last Ice Age, until 1700, just before the French settlement of Mobile. Here, you can view objects in context that highlight the Indians' gradual change at the end of the Ice Age away from a nomadic life, where they had to move almost continually to follow their food sources, to a more settled life. Discover the skills and technologies Indians used to make their lives easier and see the large number of artifacts they created in the process.
