State of Alabama mask ordinance

In compliance with the State of Alabama’s amended ‘Safer at Home’ order, beginning Friday, July 17, guests will be required to wear a mask while visiting the Anniston Museums and Gardens. This includes exhibit hall admissions, rentals, plant sales, etc.


We also ask that guests remain mindful of all the guidelines of State of Alabama’s ‘Safer at Home’ order in effect until November 8 and CDC recommendations:

  • Please practice social distancing by staying 6 feet apart from other museum guests
    • Please do not touch any exhibits during your visit: We have removed all movable hands-on items and closed AMNH’s NatureSpace. We ask that in order to protect yourself and others, you do not touch any remaining “hands-on items”.
    • Remember to cover your mouth when coughing and/or sneezing.
    • Wash your hands frequently with soap and water.


Thank you for doing your part in keeping our guests and your families safe during this time.


Winter Hours Update: Anniston Museums and Gardens is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-5pm and Sunday 1pm-5pm, with last admission at 4:30pm.
