Pioneer Museum of Alabama

248 Highway 231 North

The Pioneer Museum of Alabama opened in 1971 with the goal of preserving the history of the pioneers who settled Alabama, the gateway to the last Frontier. The collection began with one main building and a log cabin and continues to grow with the addition of artifacts, buildings and facilities. Today, the museum has more than 18,000 artifacts, 15 historic buildings, an authentic 1881 wood burning locomotive, a covered bridge, an amphitheater and a nature trail and is located on over 40 acres of beautiful wooded land. The museum received the 2003 Attraction of the Year award from the Southeast Alabama Trails, a tourism association covering thirteen Alabama counties.

Good sights, however, after paying $18 for admission we were told to leave the premises due to a photography policy and received no refund!

This place is a good 2 hour or so activity that is both fun, interesting, and educational. It's pretty amazing how many old artifacts they have, although they do need to do a significantly better job with signs telling about the items. It will be a job though as there are thousands of items. The main building has dozens of displays of all tyoes of things used in pioneer life. One of the buildings outside you will find is a general store. But, nothing is for sale. It is a general store from years ago with original items still on display! Very cool. There's also a nature trail and many other buildings. Groupon can save you about 60-70% on tickets. Definitely worth a visit once or twice.
