A very engaging staff, very knowledgable, accessible, and willing to take a million questions! There are many great historical exhibits, really nice buildings, excellent facilities! Definitely worth the trip!

The site is a re-creation of the buildings that stood in this area of town, so it it disappointing from a historic perspective that none of the buildings are original. The period-costumed guides do an excellent job of conveying the history of the constitutional convention. However, the tour seems more geared towards kids and family and less for history enthusiasts... More

4 of us "older" adults did the Twickenham Breakfast Trolley while I had guests visiting. Overall, it was a good experience but wedging into the small seating was near excruciating! The trolley is apparently made for folks of that time period and not for the 5'8"+ that each of us are. They also had the oft mentioned issues of it... More

The history is wonderful. The buildings are well kept. Costumed employees offer guided tours or will answer your questions if you prefer to wander about on your own. Nicely landscaped.

This review is of the 19 July 2014 Breakfast Trolley Tour. Our group of three adults arrived at the Alabama Constitution Village entrance about 30 minutes early and waited with several other small groups for the door to open. Once inside we checked in and enjoyed a coffee and muffin while we waited for the trolley to arrive. The coffee... More

We only went here at Christmas when they had Santa's Village. It rocks! My kids are older now, but still want to go. Don't miss it if you've got little ones.

My niece asks me every year to take her to Santa's Village! She loves decorating (and eating) a cookie, looking at the live reindeer, having her picture made with all the characters, and writing her letter to Santa. The line for Santa is a little long, and we haven't waited in the past, but it's a neat experience! Also, we... More

We wished there were more hands on activities for younger children. It was interesting to learn about Alabama history but there could have been more done with it. We did go during the week when it is less likely to be as many volunteers. This place has great potential and I am sure they will be expanding things.
