Hands On History: Build a Covered Wagon!


Put yourself in the shoes of the American pioneers. Join us at the Berman Museum any time between 2:00pm and 4:00pm to build your own covered wagon. Once your wagon is complete, you’ll have the opportunity to pack it with “supplies.” Will you be able to carry everything you need for your trip out West?

Little Explorers Preschool Program!

AM&G Logo

The weather may not allow much exploring outside, but the Anniston Museum of Natural History is the perfect place to keep your preschooler entertained and engaged, all while learning about the world around us. Every Tuesday, our Education team will encourage curiosity, exploration, and learning through play with stories, activities, and crafts about the natural world. Following the program, parents and caregivers are encouraged to explore the museum with their children and learn more about the day’s topic in our exhibit halls. A new theme will be explored each week and animal ambassadors will drop in periodically to help out!

This program is included in museum admission and free for AM&G members.
