Join us on October 31st from 8:00 am – 10:00 am for a Nightmare on Mell Street. This year the AUMNH annual open house will be held before the Ole Miss game on this scariest of days. Come join us for a hair raising experience. Visit our collections and meet all kinds of creepy crawlies.  Hold a spider, pet a snake, learn about our carnivorus plants. Explore Alabama’s biodiversity.

In the words of William Shakespeare*, “I loved it!  I was able to see…

Fillet of a fenny snake,
In the caldron boil and bake;
Eye of newt, and toe of frog,
Wool of bat, and tongue of dog,
Adder’s fork, and blind-worm’s sting,
Lizard’s leg, and owlet’s wing,—

                                                                                                              …It inspired my writting.”

Stop by for a few minutes or stay a spell.  Exact hours of operation will be posted as soon there is a game time. Check back here for updates.
