The easily accessible second floor of the Museum offers wonderful views of the surrounding area including the Festhalle, Depot, Depot Park, and the Gazebo. You can even see the statue of John Cullmann, made by internationally known sculpture Branko Medenica at a cost of $50,000, paid for by donations from local citizens and friends from John Cullmann’s hometown of Frankweiler, Germany. The statue is located between the Gazebo and Museum and its base contains cornerstones from Cullman landmarks which have long been absent from the city landscape but whose names and locations live on in the memories of many Cullman citizens.
The Natural History Room, located on the second floor, showcases numerous animals, fish, birds and insects native to the Cullman area. Exhibits include a flying squirrel in action, delicate hummingbird nest, and much more.
The Second Floor is also used by the Museum to host visiting and special exhibits. Past exhibits include Smithsonian Main Street Exhibits, World War I Posters, The Troy State Wade Hall Postcard Exhibit, Painted Porcelain, Murals Of Colony (Cullman’s African-American Enclave), Sacred Harp Memorabilia and Vintage Christmas displays. The Museum is always looking for unique exhibits to enlighten and entertain our guest.
