On June 18, 2015, the Cook Museum of Natural Science celebrated its ceremonial groundbreaking to kick-off the construction of its new site in downtown Decatur. The state-of-the-art facility will serve, educate and amaze visitors, not only in the Decatur area, but in North Alabama and the Southeast region. "Life is Amazing" will be the theme and visitors will explore and discover many areas of the natural world such as rivers and streams, caves, mountains, the arctic tundra, the desert, oceans, bayous, hardwood forests, insects, the human body, our solar system and planet earth. The 57,000 square foot building will be located in downtown at the corner of Lee Street and Fourth Avenue.
