We adults liked it, but the kids were only marginally impressed. The wood-working and printing exhibits were their highlights, and the blacksmith shop is neat. An important part of Alabama's history, so it's worth a visit. If you live in the Huntsville area, it's worth the yearly pass price (unlimited visits to Early Works and the Train Depot as well).

So, we signed up for this breakfast trolley tour. $60 for four of us to go on the trolley tour around historic huntsville. Sounded nice - with muffin and coffee included. Well, the muffin was a packaged Otis Spunkmeyer. The coffee was nowhere to be found. There was NO trolley. We were herded onto a public bus from which we... More

I visited this park and was surprised to see how much work is needed for the upkeep of the structures. Not only is paint needed for the exterior walls, but the roofs of several buildings appear to be failing altogether. The staff are nice and helpful, but the site has the appearance of being "tired". It definitely needs some serious... More

We also saw the cabinet maker he was a great guy showed us all the items, let the boys help told... More

We visited in March. It was pretty empty but we enjoyed looking around and listening to the presentation given by one of the guides. It was informative and very interesting. The only thing we were surprised about was that google gave information that the place was open on Monday however only the museum shop was open. That was a little... More

This is a good place to experience various aspects of village living in Huntsville. The volunteers and actors are super in representing how villagers lived and worked during the 1800's. You can see how lace was made, blacksmith shop, woodworking shop, printing factory, kitchen duty, etc. The children will enjoy getting close to see many of the demonstrations. Parking is... More

My husband I visited on April 26th. The staff is so knowledgable and friendly. They made you feel that they loved their positions. We learned so much history, and how creative and adaptive our ancestors were. It is a wonderful hour or two. A must for families with middle school or high school children. Very informative.

My favorite time to visit The Village is Christmas. The people who work there make is so special all year but Christmastime it is magical. Everything is perfectly decorated inside and out. Santa of course, but also a blacksmith in the barn, it snows on people waiting to get into Santa's house, There's a corral with Real Live Reindeer, crafts... More

This is a good informational history lesson for children. There are a few different activities to do. Kids get to "churn" butter by shaking a jar and have the opportunity to taste the results. There is a practice cow to milk, period accurate housing, period accurate clothing, and a little school house.

It was a very enjoyable time with my four grandsons aged 5-9. It was quite crowded. The attractions were cute. Reindeer were great. There were lots of Picture taking scenes such as snowmen to put your face in, Santa's sleigh to sit in, presents to stand in front of, etc. Frosty the Snowman and the Gingerbread man were walking around...
