Gulf Shores Museum is in a little house located across the street from the library that dates to before World War II.
Originally it was the beach house of Valerie Cole’s family from Mobile. First located on West Beach, it was donated to the city following Hurricane Frederic in 1979. The building has been in use by the city since 1982.
Gulf Shores Museum is s mall place but it has facts about Gulf Shores and information on the hurricanes that have hit the island. There is a great video on Ivan and what it did in 2005.
