Museum adds Alabama history detail to tours

Posted: Updated:
Associated Press - Alabama's state museum plans to launch a series of themed tours intended to give visitors a sharper focus on particular aspects of the state's history and culture.

The first program will begins July 12 and focuses on "Small Town Alabama." New themes will be featured on the second Saturday of every month through December.

July's theme is "Stitched in Time," looking at what Alabamians have worn, sewn and quilted throughout the state's history. August will focus on Alabama celebrations, from Mardi Gras in Mobile to the Auburn-Alabama football game.

Children's exhibits will be the focus in October. The series will conclude with "Alabama and World War I" in November and a closer look at Alabama's Civil War Soldiers and life in the state during the bitter conflict.

Admission is free.
