Alabama’s Must-See Museums | WKRG


(STACKER) – Museums are one of the most important institutions in any country. They don’t just show us our past, they contextualize it, allowing visitors to better understand cultures and ourselves. Good museum exhibits provoke thought, generate ideas, and create a sense of appreciation for those who have come before. In many towns and cities, museums are public gems and often feature prominently on tourist visits. Stacker compiled a list of museums in Alabama on Tripadvisor.
