Freshwater Mussel Exhibit – Now Available Online!

The Freshwater Mussel Exhibit on the third floor of the Alabama Museum of Natural History explores Alabama’s Freshwater Biodiversity with a look into why they are important to our environment and mussel biology including learning how to age mussels. We also explore how mussels were used in fashion with a collaboration with The Fashion Archive at the University of Alabama, exploring how the fashion industry affected the mussel populations in Alabama.

If this sparks your interest, we now have an online exhibit where you can learn more about all aspects of the exhibit.
