TUSCALOOSA, AL- After months of being closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Paul W. Bryant Museum has finally reopened its doors.

After five and half months of being closed, the museum has finally allowed guests to come and tour the exhibits.

To ensure the safety of the guests who choose to tour the museum, the hours have changed.

The museum will operate Thursday through Sunday at 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

‘We’re just gonna be open Thursday, Friday, Saturdays and Sundays for the forseeable future,” said Bryant Museum Director Ken Gaddy. “So that weekend crowd is our busiest time, and it gives those other days to clean and get things prepared to make it safe for people to come in.”

With the start of the football season beginning this weekend, Gaddy said these hours of operation allow the museum to keep providing a safe environment for visitors.

“We’re using the first away weekend kind of as a trial run to make sure everything works, ” said Gaddy. “We got all the processes back up and running. So, you can come out this weekend. Help us out. Get in the game day mode, and then of course there first Tuscaloosa game is Texas A&M the following week.”

Those who choose to attend the museum are required to wear masks and social distance throughout the entirety of their visit.
