Three Attractions, One Membership

Anniston Museum of Natural History offers members the opportunity to explore our vast world under one roof! From exploring a replica cave, to coming face-to-face with spectacular animals in life-like natural settings, to examining two Egyptian mummies, members explore the world in one day! Members enjoy a variety of educational and fun programs and events throughout the year!

Berman Museum offers members the chance to explore history through five permanent exhibit halls. Members discover how the American West was settled, admire the deadly beauties of the world, learn about the Chinese dynasties through art and pottery, experience the somber events of World War I, World War II, and Pearl Harbor, and explore the mysterious world of espionage. Members will get a glimpse of some of the most impactful moments in history through educational programming.

Longleaf Botanical Gardens offers members the experience of the ever-changing nature of Alabama. Explore the Rotary Sensory Garden, Tropical Cascade Garden, and Longleaf Nature Trail. Members receive discounted rates to workshops and programs including the gardens’ monthly Third Thursday program.

Anniston Museums and Gardens Members enjoy many benefits, including our extensive reciprocal programs. Always travel with your membership card to enjoy discounted or complimentary admission to hundreds of museums and gardens throughout the nation.
