Trying to kill some time in Opelika I happened upon the East Alabama Museum and stopped in. There is no fee but donations are accepted. The curator was very friendly and we talked for a while. The museum has some interesting pieces from all aspects of civilian and military life. Some are rural and most relate to East Alabama but there are some wartime pieces that are intertwined with the POW Camp Opelika, which I found to be very interesting. There are tools and large pieces of machinery, glass, porcelain, pottery, china, maps, surgical items, kitchen items, Alabama indestructible dolls, childrens' toys. All in all I was surprised at the amount and the quality of what was in the museum. You too would be surprised If you didn't know it had been hiding in Opelika all along. It is a good stop for an hour and you will be pleasantly surprised at what you see inside this museum.
