Our Mission

The Pioneer Museum of Alabama is dedicated to preserving and presenting its unique collection of historical buildings, structures, and exhibits to advance a greater knowledge and appreciation of the past.

Our Strategy

We will achieve our Mission through...

  • experiential and cross-generational educational programming
  • artifact rich, primary source supported exhibitions
  • dynamic community engagement offerings
  • cultivation of an esteemed membership
  • altruistic and service opportunities
  • heritage preservation and advocacy outreach for fading/lost folkart tradition

Our Belief

BELIEF

The Belief is a reflection of the Mission, in that we affirm...

  • that although visitors may arrive as our guests, they will always depart as our friends
  • that hands-on learning truly encourages retention and passion
  • that there is a deep satisfaction in crafting an object with your own hands
  • that food grown and made with patience and love tastes best 
  • that we recognize our early settlers and indigenous people laid the cornerstones for many of the technologies we utilize today
  • that so many of our beloved folkarts are traditions that must be perpetuated to prevent losing them permanently
  • that the Museum collectively fosters a unique and special kind of homespun "magic"
  • that our community of supporters (staff, volunteers and board of directors) should be deeply, emotionally vested in its grand purpose and operation
  • that the grounds and galleries are a safe, creative environment for families and children to make life long memories
  • that we are a living classroom and educational resource for local schools and academic institutions
  • that being sustainable and ecofriendly are not new concepts
  • that artifacts are more than just objects...they are the irreplaceable, tangible and personal stories of our ancestors
  • that pioneers did more than just settle this land, they made a HOME within a Homestead

WELCOME!
