WHO: Paul W. Bryant Museum
Members and children under 6 are free; Adults: $2; Senior Citizens (60 and up): $1; Children (6-17): $1.
WHAT: Museum dedicated to the great Paul “Bear” Bryant, as well as to the history of the Crimson Tide football program. It is also “storage space” for the multitude of trophies Alabama has won over the years.
WHEN: A committee of 55, composed of former Bryant players, coaches and alumni, was convened in 1983 to plan the museum. Many items such as trophies, photos, media guides, banners, and even Bryant’s desk were already on hand for display. Calls to the public for Bama artifacts produced many more items of personal and unique pieces which gives the museum and special look into life as an Alabama fan.
The 8,000-square-foot exhibit hall opened on October 8, 1988 and now averages 40,000 visitors annually.
WHY: If you are a fan of Alabama football or even have a begrudging respect for the program, this is a bucket list must see.
