Birmingham Museum of Art
One of the finest museums in the Southeast- extensive collection, thousands of works of art, in a beautiful museum.
Well-curated art museum, featuring one of the finest and most diverse collections in the Southeastern US. If you go on a Sunday afternoon, they have a fantastic brunch.
The museum is free and generally has some interesting exhibits rotating through. I'm a fan of many of the paintings in their permanent collection.
The museum exhibits are always changing. Wonderful to check out whenever you have the time or if you're looking for something to do on a rainy day. The museum also has a cafe restaurant attached that serves lunch.
“The Vulcan statue is the largest cast iron statue in the world, and is the city symbol of Birmingham, Alabama, reflecting its roots in the iron and steel industry. The 56-foot tall statue depicts the Roman god Vulcan, god of the fire and forge.”
“Birmingham Civil Rights Institute is a large interpretive museum and research center in Birmingham, Alabama that depicts the struggles of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s and 1960s.”
“Fantastic science center for the young in the family. Any exhibits are hands on. ”
“The newest mall around town. Stores are located in a village like set up, with a sprawling parking lot in between. Mildly walkable, and a decent movie theater. Lots of stores, and a few fun places to eat (ShakeShack, Flip Burger, California Pizza Kitchen, Zoes).”
