    Anniston Museum of Natural History - Anniston
    Explore the wilds of Africa, the wonders of the North American wilderness, and the mysteries of 2,000 year old mummies in the seven fascinating exhibit halls of the Anniston Museum of Natural History. Open-air exhibits place you face to face with majestic--and often deadly--animals! See one of the country's oldest exhibits of birds in their habitats, and explore the children's discovery room for hands-on experiences with Alabama's natural wonders. Visit the Changing Exhibit Gallery for a look at how artists interpret nature. Stroll along outdoor nature trails and enjoy global shopping in the Museum Store.

    This is a field trip idea that I got from the Cover school that we go through:
    The Nina and Pinta, replicas of Christopher Columbus’ ships, are touring together as a new and enhanced sailing museum for the purpose of educating the public and school children. While in port, the general public is invited to visit the ships for a walk aboard, self-guided tour. The prices are $7 for adults, $6 for senior citizens and $5 for students. Children 4 and under are free. The ships will be open every day through 9 a.m. – 6 p.m. No reservations are necessary. Call 1-787-672-2152, visit the website at www.thenina.com or email columfnd@surbvi.com for more information.
