A donation to the Pioneer Museum of Alabama is an investment in the community.
The Museum educates the future generations of Pike County and the surrounding areas about the hardships of those who fought for a better life before us.
The ingenuity of our ancestral pioneers is a valuable lesson that we daily teach through our many different programs.
In addition to being an educational pillar in the community, the Museum is also a major tourism attraction for Troy and Pike County, which helps bring revenue to toher businesses and attractions in the area.
Each year, the museum has visitors from many states across America as well as countries throughout the world.
The Museum strives to reflect the community spirit of the area - a symbol to visitors of our commitment and pride in those who came before us.
Your contribution can go a long way towards providing a more positive, educational environment at the Museum.
It will help to maintain and upgrade exhibits as well as help us to continue to provide fascinating, informative, hands-on programming for children in the community and Southeast Alabama.
Many things are necessary to operate an organization in a way that allows it to give back to its community.
Without proper maintenance, the Museum will be unable to grow and thrive. Your donation can help to ensure the Museum will be here for years to come.
The Pioneer Museum of Alabama currently stands out as a premier institution among its colleagues. However, we are continually searching for areas of improvement.
Our longtime goal is to be a full-time living history farmstead and museum so that we can constantly demonstrate the dexterity of the hard working people of yesteryear.
Currently, we provide this experience to booked groups and during festivals but this expansion would provide EVERY visitor with a positive, real-life experience of what life was like before the invention of space shuttles, television, computers and cell phones.
We believe that a hands-on experience is much more memorable than a simple visual encounter.
Anytime that we can help our visitors and students better retain what they learn at our Museum, we have succeeded at our mission.
There are no establishments that equal the Museum's outstanding combination of over 18,000 artifacts and 22 historic structures combined with phenomenal educational components within the state of Alabama.
YOU will help to preserve the past for the future.
YOU will help to enrich children's lives and provide them with a better understanding of the ways of the past.
YOU will provide the Museum with the resources it needs to better enrich the community and give the citizens of Pike County some thing that they can be proud of.
Older generations can rest easy, knowing that their stories will live on.
YOU will be the pivitol piece of a better tomorrow.
We want YOU!
