Jesse Owens Museum, Moulton

4.7
#49 of 129 in Museums in Alabama
A single man with a conviction “One chance is all you need,” proved that very thing in the 1936 Olympics - and changed the world. He tore down Hitler’s superior race theory and confirmed that moral character and integrity is what distinguishes one from another, not the color of one’s skin.

The Jesse Owens Memorial Park and Museum’s goal is to honor the life and accomplishments of this remarkable man, before and after the Olympics, and to educate the public of the legacy of this Olympic great and his contributions to athletics and humankind. Located in Owens’s birthplace of Oakville, Alabama, JOMP showcases memorials including a museum, bronze statue, mini-theater, 1936 torch replica, birth home replica and an oak tree that was planted as a symbol of Owens’ lost Olympic Gold Medal Tree. The Owens family planted the tree at the park on May 16, 1998.

  • Enjoyed our visit here. The curator was full of knowledge that she shared completely. Found out that I was related closer in the family tree than I realised. We will be back with my kids and grandkids...  more »
  • This place is off the beaten path But worth the drive. The Museum is so beautifully done... So much History and memorabilia including the home he was born in. We were the only people there at the time...  more »

  • Got there to early to go into the Museum but I still enjoyed it a lot. Jesse Owens is a true American inspiration. I was just passing by and decided to stop when I saw the sign. I'm glad I did. Paid my respects to a great Role Model of my race.
  • This is a great Museum. They have the house that Jesse Owens lived in when he was a small child. His parents were sharecroppers so it is a very good picture of how Sharecroppers lived. The volunteers are very informative and have wonderful stories to tell. There is also a video that is narrated by Jesse Owens himself. He tells you all about the 1936 Olympics.
