In line with Coach Bryant's original concept, the Museum's first exhibit is the Hall of Honor. Surrounded by the team photos of each of his teams is a large bust of the legendary coach, Paul W. "Bear" Bryant. Blair Buswell of Utah sculpted this artwork that serves as a fitting introduction to the museum's visitors.
Beginning with the first team in 1892 through the present day - the exhibits chronicle the history and tradition of the Crimson Tide. The history story is told through the people, places and events that laid the foundation that today's team stands upon.
Former players speak often about the awe they felt visiting Coach Bryant's office. A glimpse of that experience is available for the museum's guests.
In the days before television the radio was the best way for Tide fans to be close to the action even from hundreds of miles away. The broadcast crew became a valued part of the Tide family. This exhibit pays tribute to the broadcasters.
A Waterford crystal replica of Coach Bryant's houndstooth hat was created by internationally acclaimed sculptor Miraslav Havel and presented by the Waterford Crystal Company of Ireland and the Bromberg Company of Birmingham.
