Visit the home of 14 college football national championships with a complete history of Alabama football. See lots of bowl trophies, watch countless hours of historic footage, and view an ode to former coaches of the past. Expect to spend some time in here and bring a camera.

The kind of museum that may inspire you to never leave home without your portable team mascot. We're just guessing.

Coach Paul W. "Bear" Bryant Museum

There is a museum located on the University of Alabama campus dedicated to the legendary college football coach Paul "Bear" Bryant and the history of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team dating back to 1892. It's a great attraction for any good football fan. There are artifacts such as authentic football gear from several eras, trophies, tickets from famous games, a lot of other memorabilia, a set up of the late coach's office using the actual furniture, and many other things too numerous to describe. There are also other sites around campus relating to the football team that any good football fan around here can direct a person to view. At the base of Denny Chimes are the cemented handprints and footprints of all the Bama captains since the 1940's.
