“Worth a Side Trip”

Anniston Museum of Natural History
Ranked #1 of 12 things to do in Anniston
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 28 October 2013

This little-know museum is off the beaten path, but is very much worth a side trip. Set in beautiful grounds, it houses an excellent interpretation of the nature of Alabama, a state with highly diverse geology, ranging from the Coastal Plain to the ancient crystalline rocks of the Valley and Ridge Province. Alabama's biology is equally diverse. The ANMH takes the visitor through all the varied geology, and all the eco-systems found in the State.

The Anniston Museum of Natural History displays and interprets these sciences well. The exhibits and the explanatory material will be interesting to both children and adults. It is difficult to create displays which convey the information clearly to adults, but which do not go over the heads of children. The AMNH succeeds in making things both interesting and comprehensible to all.

An excellent good museum.

What a wonderful surprise to have such a display of natural history. Appropriate for all ages. The bird collection is impressive. Enjoyed the gift shop as it had a large amount of items that were unique as well as priced fair. It took my family of 4 approximately 1.5 hours to complete a walk thru. Will definitely return.

My children and I really enjoyed this museum. There are so many different exhibits. Lots of hands on things for children to do. The exhibits held their attention the entire time. The courtyard was also very nice.

The museum has a little bit of a lot of stuff, and LOTs of animals- lifesize and close up. (real animals stuffed) My four year old loves it. This trip we found the Alligator Gar fish that he reads about in his "all about fish" kid book. The bird exhibit is huge and some of it from the early 1900's-- As odd as this collection is, it is, well, something I haven't seen anywhere else.
