Our museum open houses are a tradition at UA, and a big hit with families.
On Dec. 9, three of UA’s museums will offer seasonal decorations, refreshments, family-friendly exhibits and crafts, and free admission.
Start your open house visits at the Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum on Jack Warner Parkway. The event runs from 2-4 p.m. Continue on to the Gorgas House Museum on campus between 3-5 p.m., and finish your afternoon at the Alabama Museum of Natural History Open House from 4-5:30 p.m.
Origami Artists Needed
The Alabama Museum of Natural History invites students, faculty and staff to help decorate the museum for the holidays with nature-themed origami.
