About the museum
Cook Museum of Natural Science is a modern natural history museum located in Decatur Alabama which is about a half hour from Huntsville. In museum, kids can explore, interact with and learn about nature. It’ an amazing experience for families and children of all ages.
In 1968 John Cook, Sr. opened his professional insect collection to the public by appointment. First it had been used primarily for employee training at Cook’s Pest Control, but later it grew to include a wide array of mounted wildlife, touring malls throughout Alabama, Tennessee and Georgia.
From 1980 when the additional collections of rocks, minerals, fossils, coral, sea shells, wildlife and federally protected migratory birds were acquired until its closing in 2016, the museum welcomed more than 750,000 visitors. Since the museum had been so meaningful for decades, the Cook family decided it was time to reinvent the museum. The new Cook Museum of Natural Science, now a non-profit was opened on June 7, 2019.
