Join us on an exclusive trip for AMA members to meet Butch Anthony, tour his museum and stomping grounds, watch live demonstrations, and have a boxed lunch on the property. This is a free, family-friendly trip for only 50 AMA members. We will be taking a charter bus, or you may drive separately, to Seale Alabama on June 19th at 9am to arrive by 11am. The tour itself will take an estimated 90 minutes, leaving plenty of time for a picnic lunch provided by the AMA before returning back to Albany by 5pm.
At the age of fourteen, Butch Anthony built a one-room log cabin that became a workshop for his many creations and eventually the first incarnation of the Museum of Wonder. As his skills developed, Butch began to build and fashion furniture, sculptures, and many other works of art and constructions. The Museum soon became too small and too popular for the log cabin to contain.
In 2014, Butch built The World’s First Drive-Thru Museum out of shipping containers. It sits off U.S. HWY 431 in Seale, Alabama and exhibits a rotating display of Butch’s handcrafted designs and curiosities for the wonderment of visitors and passerbys alike.
