Discovery Day: Growing Crystals!

People often associate bats, spiders, and snakes with fear, but they are fascinating animals that benefit humans. Join us at the Anniston Museum of Natural History as we discover book lungs, new senses (did you know there are more than 5?!), and a fiber that is an engineering marvel through artifacts and hands-on activities. You may even walk away with a new appreciation for these animals. 

Discovery Day is included in museum admission and free for members.

World War II affected the lives of all Americans, whether they were at home or fighting on the front lines, but how did the war affect the holidays, especially Christmas? Join us at the Berman Museum for a heartwarming look at how the Christmas holiday changed, how it remained the same, and how it introduced new holiday traditions that remain part of Christmas today.
