Plan your visit to Monroeville today
We hope you’ll come to see us soon. We think our museums offer the best experience of the Deep South you’ll find anywhere. You can explore the roots of classic Southern literature by Harper Lee and Truman Capote, learn about Native American culture along the Alabama River, or step back to pioneer days at Rikard’s Mill. Spend a day or two with us, and you’ll probably leave with a Southern drawl!
We recommend you begin any visit to Monroeville or Monroe County at the Old Courthouse Museum on Monroeville’s Courthouse Square. If you have questions, ask anyone in our museum office. We’re good with Southern history AND Southern hospitality. You’ll find a Tourist Information Center near the entrance to the Old Courthouse Museum. From driving tours of rural Monroe County to information on where to eat, it’s all here. A series of driving tours (with maps) takes you along the back roads of Monroe County through historic hamlets that seem frozen in time. If you really want to discover Alabama in the To Kill a Mockingbird-era 1930s, you’ll find it along these picturesque roads.
