For the Children

A photo booth, crafts, and games will all be included in admission. This is a safe, socially distant celebration so bring your snazziest mask and a great attitude!

 

TTown History

As we all can agree, our city is full of rich, engaging history. The Mildred Westervelt Warner Transportation Museum is proudly hosting “Stitching Together Tuscaloosa’s History” for the dates of February 16 – March 27. This University of Alabama student-curated exhibition was created as a celebration of Tuscaloosa’s ever-changing and diversifying communities. This exhibition takes a new look at the Tuscaloosa Bicentennial Quilt through the lens of Black History and the rich stories spun by African American quilters. This free admission event is a perfect way to educate yourself and others about our community while also observing the amazing craftsmanship of the Bicentennial Quilt!
