About us:

In 1996, the Berman Museum opened in Lagarde Park, Anniston, Alabama. Lagarde Park is also home to the Anniston Museum of Natural History, a nationally accredited museum. Initially, the Berman Museum exhibits what was originally a 6,000-piece private collection held by world travelers Farley and Germaine Berman. Now enlarged to a permanent collection of over 8,000 artifacts, the museum holds pieces from around the world including an extensive collection of bronze sculptures, paintings, weaponry and historical documents.

In 1999, Colonel Berman passed away leaving the remaining objects to the foundation. Ongoing research continues to reveal fascinating new information about the objects.Today, the Berman Museum is visited by thousands of people from around the world. Special events allow fresh interpretation of the material in the Berman collection. The collection continues to entertain and inspire new generations, just as the Bermans envisioned.
