Anniston Museum of Natural History

Anniston Museums and Gardens (AM&G) transforms lives through history and nature. We have something for everyone! Home to the Anniston Museum of Natural History, Berman Museum, and Longleaf Botanical Gardens, a wide array of worldly artifacts and wild creatures awaits. Visiting AM&G allows you to Explore Your World without needing a passport!
Upon arrival, take a walk around the grounds, for the gardens are all around you. With native plants, tropical palms, and fruitful trees, you’ll soon forget you’re just three miles from Downtown Anniston. AM&G resides on 125 acres nestled among our Treasure Forest, perfect for native wildlife to flourish. At the Anniston Museum of Natural History, come face-to-face with prehistoric predators, go spelunking in a replica Alabama cave, stroll the African savanna, and visit Ptolemaic-era mummies. The Berman Museum invites you to take a walk through history, honor our veterans, admire the arts of Asia, and discover the danger of espionage. Discover your green thumb at the Longleaf Botanical Gardens and become one with nature as you test your senses in the Rotary Sensory Garden, see Alabama-native raptors on the Bird of Prey Trail, relax by the Tropical Cascading Garden and in the Tropical Courtyard Garden, and trek the Longleaf Nature Trail.
In 1930, the Anniston Museum of Natural History's collection made its way from Pennsylvania to Anniston, Alabama after citizens raised money to transport and house the artifacts in the now-demolished Carnegie Library. The collection opened to the public under the name of the Regar Museum.
In 1976, thanks to a generous donor John B. Lagarde, the Anniston Museum of Natural History opened its doors. Since opening, the museum's collection continues to grow and educate generations of people.
