About us: 

The Guntersville Museum & Cultural Center focuses on Guntersville's history, art and culture with featured exhibits including the TVA’s construction of Guntersville Dam, Creak and Cherokee artifacts and paintings, and tributes to the city’s earliest families. Housed in an historic military armory, the museum is centrally located in town. In addition to its permanent collection, one or two national traveling exhibits are hosted by the museum each year.

Native Stone. So It’s Only Natural We Turned Ours Into A Museum.

The new museum has taken a city landmark and turned it into the cornerstone of an entire cultural district. The facility was built in 1936 prior to World War II, as a military armory for Company E, 167th Infantry Division.

Built under the Works Progress Act (WPA), the building was constructed of local rough limestone. With its distinctive castellated (castle-like) architecture, the Museum sits on a tree-covered hilltop adjacent to Guntersville’s highly rated city Library and overlooking the acclaimed Whole Backstage Community Theatre.

Not real big but with very interesting artifacts and very nice staff. Kids really enjoyed it, we especially liked the Native American exhibit; I was able to show the kids our heritage.
