The Cook Museum of Natural Science is a state-of-the-art natural science museum in downtown Decatur, Alabama. It provides a hands-on, immersive experience where kids can explore, interact with, and learn about nature.
The humble roots of this non-profit 501(c)(3) museum can be traced back to 1968 when John Cook, Sr. opened his professional insect collection to the public by appointment, which at the time had been used primarily for employee training at Cook’s Pest Control.
