Hidden Wonder
Nov 2020
The building itself is a "museum" as it reflects history of the WPA work of the depression. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Everything displayed with loving care and easily seen. We only spent about an hour but plan to return for the festival of the trees in next few weeks. Loved it!

Always something new to see
Dec 2019
We are local residents and I love taking the whole family to see the Festival of Trees around Christmas and throughout the year for their many different exhibits. The curator is very knowledgeable and loves keeping the museum interesting for kids too.

A Rare Gem
Oct 2019 • Couples
Often times city museums can be small and hohum. This museum is a gem! How the artifacts displayed and the descriptions or stories they tell are very well done. Its not cluttered and I like how they have the story line from Native Americans to the city history even during the 60’s and 70’s. Fascinating history. Bravo!!! And its free!

A Gem That You May Not Know
Jul 2019 • Friends
This is a very nice museum that many may not know is there! The museum has permanent displays of rocks, geodes, artifacts, a history of Lake Guntersville and the TVA dam, and local art as well. One temp exhibit a couple years ago was a gorgeous and interesting quilt collection with added antique sewing gadgets/ machines that would intrigue and delight anyone! Currently there is an exhibit of vintage area maps which is also great to view. Housed in an old building adds to the museum’s inviting charm.

wide variety of exhibits.

A little off the beaten path, but well worth the visit. A lot of civil war items and Indian history of the area.

History Lesson
Sep 2018 • Couples
When went to the museum to see the traveling exhibit on Alabama history. Although we are both natives of Alabama, we learned so many interesting facts during this visit. The admission was free.

Wonderful small museum
Aug 2018 • Couples
This is a well kept, small museum with the history of Guntersville, Al. right at your finger tips. There is no charge for admission just a donation request and very wonderful and cheerful senior citizen volunteer hostesses to answer any questions. It is worth your time to visit if in town for a relaxing tour.

Festival of Trees
Nov 2017 • Couples
We attended the opening reception of the Festival of Trees this week and it was very enjoyable. It’s the annual holiday display of themed trees. Also going on are the Norman Rockwell Home for the Holidays exhibit, Christmas in my Hometown photo exhibit and a holiday quilt exhibit. The holidays aren’t complete without a visit to the museum and we will stroll through another time or two between now and Christmas.

First-rate facility
Nov 2017 • Solo
Not knowing much about the area I thought that this would be a great way to get dialed into the local history, and I wasn't disappointed. I spent about an hour and fifteen minutes there, and there was no admission charge. The old armory itself is interesting and the staff were exceptionally friendly and welcoming.
