The Gateway Innovation and Discovery Center is a central hub designed to connect Tuscaloosa to the latest technology. As it is the starting point for Tuscaloosa’s City Walk, the Gateway is also the entryway to a world of limitless content and opportunity.

In addition to offering free access to laptops, tablets, and a massive digital library, the center provides unique opportunities for collaboration, education, and economic development.

A large training room is ideal for workforce development, seminars, and workshops.  And an Children’s Exploration Room serves education and entertainment in equally powerful portions.

The Gateway is also home to a 16′-by-5’ interactive discovery wall. One of only a handful in existence worldwide, this wall presents a totally unique experience. Users can wander through the people and places from our communities, past and present, and discover interesting facts and hidden gems.
