So, from now until Jan. 1, 2001, new members will get to enjoy unlimited access to the museum and the special event that are just around the corner. On Nov. 10, the museum will host Pioneer Day, a recreation of the 1800s where a family can step back into the past as pioneer and Native American camps come to life. Then, in December, the entire family can enjoy and old-fashioned Christmas lighting and caroling service that will a highlight of the holiday season.

Charlotte Gibson said two months free membership is just the beginning of the good deals that membership offers.

The museum is open seven days a week throughout the year except the major holidays. The hours are 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1 until 5 p.m. on Sunday. Therefore, the museum offers fun and entertainment almost all day long, almost every day of the year.

Members are also admitted free to all special events at the museum except the Jean Lake Festival, which is not solely a museum sponsored event.

We are proud of the Pioneer Museum of Alabama and the history it holds inside its walls and on the grounds. We encourage everyone to consider a museum membership and to be sure to visit the museum and attend the activities.
