Things to see at the Alabama War Museum

The Alabama War Museum, which also goes by the name Ancient Wars Museum, is located in the northern city of Madison, Alabama. The museum is family owned and operated and it is housed inside a quaint and charming log cabin. While the museum seems small from outside, it houses a large amount of knowledge and history. The museum showcases a wide range of history with artifacts from 10,000 B.C. all the way through the American Revolutionary War. The staff at Divine Expressions Dentistry loves to make visits to the historical museum.

Many of their artifacts are weapons and other items used for combat by a range of cultures throughout time. All of their artifacts are real-they are all authentic and original. They have an exhibit dedicated to Native American (especially the Aztec, Inca, and Mayan peoples) weapons and other cultural artifacts. The museum has an exhibit dedicated to Persian and Greek cultures, which contains interesting helmets, weapons, and shields. The museum contains cultural artifacts from all over the world, in addition to those previously mentioned. This includes Viking, Chinese, African, Egyptian, and Celtic cultural artifacts. 

If you prefer some of their more recent artifacts, moving toward modern-day, the museum also has an extensive collection of American Revolutionary and American Civil War-era muskets that are a must-see! So from these muskets, one can see that the museum doesn’t just showcase specific cultures, but also artifacts from specific time periods. For example, they also showcase artifacts from the Templar Times, the Middle Ages, the Modern Times, the Napoleon War, and others. To do more studying on these topics, the Madison Public Library has everything you would ever need to know.

The Alabama War Museum also has a small gift shop! Even if you don’t want to buy anything, it’s a fun part of the museum to walk through and see. After checking out the museum, go check out Divine Expressions Dentistry located nearby. The museum has a number of positive reviews on multiple platforms from people that have attended. Their address and museum hours are located on their website and Facebook page.
