Santa's Village has been a tradition for our family for years. But it's apparently everyone else's tradition too. We went on a Saturday evening, with nice warm weather, just as they opened for the evening, and didn't even get to see Santa because the line was just that long. It was uncomfortable just to walk around, it was so packed.... More

My family has visited Santa's Village every Christmas for the past 5 years. Photos with Santa are awesome! They have all kinds of activities for the kids. This is a must if you have young kids. I recommend that you get there when they open at 5 and go straight to Santa. Then follow up with the activities. Santa's line... More

Very interesting and informative. The staff did an excellent job. It was very clean n the gift shop and organized even though traffic was heavy. Parking isn't very close though.

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
