A Bicentennial Blog: Guntersville Museum and Cultural Center

Alabama has launched a three-year celebration that honors its 200th birthday from 2017 to 2019. During those three years, Alabamians across the state will celebrate Alabama Places, Alabama People and Alabama Stories. Marshall County is fortunate to have a plethora of historical places, people and stories.

The Guntersville Museum and Cultural Center is located in the historic rock Armory in the downtown cultural district in Guntersville. Located at the southernmost point of the Tennessee River, Lake Guntersville provides a unique vantage point on history and the culture of the region. As a living source, the Museum offers visitors a chance to explore everything from Native American artifacts to interesting local personalities.

The Guntersville Museum and Cultural Center has four areas of focus: Guntersville History and Nostalgia, Native American Exhibits, Frank Nelson Watercolors, and Bessie’s Birds. All four areas are not only significant to the region, but are significant to Marshall County and Guntersville alike. The museum also holds several guest exhibits throughout the year including the Marcia Hodges, Plein Air Artist exhibit, Norman Rockwell’s Home for the Holidays exhibit and the ever-popular Festival of Trees exhibit.

Museum Hours:

Tuesday – Friday: 10AM – 4PM

Saturday – Sunday: 1PM – 4PM

Closed on Mondays
