Monroe County Museum

Monroe County Museum, housed in the Old Courthouse, maintains and operates four historic sites in Monroe County that collectively interpret the area’s rich history, with a special focus at the Old Courthouse Museum on the literary legacies of Monroeville’s two most famous writers, Truman Capote and Harper Lee. Fans of Harper Lee’s famous novel To Kill a Mockingbird travel to the courthouse from all over the world in their quest for a tangible connection to the book’s fictional town of Maycomb. Several of Truman Capote’s most famous works, including A Christmas Memory, The Grass Harp and Other Voices, Other Rooms, are inspired by Capote’s childhood in Monroeville. The Bird’s Nest Gift Shop, located inside the Museum, carries gifts for all ages, including: Home Décor, Baby Gifts, Specialty Food Items, works by Local Artists and Authors and, of course, Local Souvenirs and Keepsakes. Proceeds from the Bird’s Nest directly support the Museum’s programs.
