The Museum of Alabama, located at the Alabama Department of Archives and History in downtown Montgomery, is the home of Alabama history. Permanent exhibitions include The Land of Alabama, introducing the geology and natural resources that helped shape the state's history, and The First Alabamians, featuring artifacts, murals, and a diorama that tell the inspiring story of fourteen thousand years of Native American culture. Children will enjoy the Hands-On-Gallery and Grandma’s Attic, where they can dress in period costumes, play with toys from bygone eras, make crafts, and much more. An entirely new centerpiece exhibition, Alabama Voices, opening February 15, 2014, covers the dramatic unfolding of Alabama history from the dawn of the 1700s to the beginning of the 21st century.
