The Warner Transportation Museum is excited and proud to collaborate with Flow Tuscaloosa. We have been partnered with Atlanta-based artist Hannah Palmer, who will be showcasing her research and observations on swimming pools. Since the original purpose of the historic Queen City Pool and Bath house was a pool before it became the Transportation Museum, this partnership couldn’t be more perfect.

Our newest exhibit opens April 19th and is titled Swimming Together. The exhibit will showcase how local history aligned with national trends, challenge myths about integration and public pools, and encourage community response about swimming with engagement boards. The exhibit will also include an interactive display by The Fashion Archive at UA, as well as swim artifacts from the community and the university.

We want to take this opportunity to discuss the original history of the building as we work to educate the community at large. All of Tuscaloosa is welcome to return to the Bath house and learn about the history of swimming in our community.
