              The Birmingham Museum of Art is the largest municipal art museum in the
              Southeast and this year it is celebrating its 50th anniversary. The museum
              is home to a nationally-recognized permanent collection of over 21,000
              works of art dating from 3000 B.C. to the present. For The Record looks at
              the museum, it’s holdings and the 50 years of history of the museum.

              For The Record will look at the Union and Confederate navies used during
              the Civil War, and explore a museum devoted to that just across the
              Chattahoochee River in Columbus, Georgia.
