The Birmingham History Center has moved from the Young & Vann Building and temporarily closed the museum
The Birmingham History Center
is pulling up stakes after Advance Media (al.com and The Birmingham News) leased the Young & Vann building--the museum's home since 2010--earlier this year.
On Nov. 1
, the center moved museum exhibits into temporary storage and opened its offices into space adjacent to the Alabama Theatre.
1807 Third Avenue North
Birmingham, AL 35203
(205)202-4146 -- unchanged

The center has ceased museum operations but will continue collections, the website, the bi-monthly newsletter, the blog (birminghamhistorycenter.wordpress.com), speaking engagements, and a new video contest for high school students, ZOOM BACK!, see below, at the new location.
The History Center will shift into a planning mode in the next 12 months as it considers options for acquiring a permanent site.
