About Us

POWs arriving June 2, 1943.


The Aliceville Museum has grown from a single room in the Aliceville Public Library to a large facility encompassing three buildings, a courtyard, and a plaza area in downtown Aliceville.  The museum has been in its current location since 1995.  There are four main exhibit rooms and a large meeting space.  The facility is handicap accessible.

All items in our exhibits have been donated by or are on loan from individuals or families from, or having connections to, Pickens County.  We are always interested in obtaining additional items to enhance our collections.

We are particularly interested in items and documents pertaining to Camp Aliceville or other POW camps, WWII military, and items relevant to the history of Aliceville and Pickens County including those relative to the African American experience.

Contact the museum for information about how to donate or loan items.
