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.

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...

We have been before, but this year our kids are 5=4 and 6. Our 4 year old still loved it and thought everything was great. Our 6 year old said it was "babyish." We got there right when they opened and stood in line to see Santa for about half an hour. They had a cartoon playing for the kids... More

I have only been to the Constitution Village during the Christmas season when they have the Santa's Village. I loved it as much as my children! They have several activities for the kids and the decorations are perfect. The staff is friendly and everything is well maintained. I do recommend getting there early or be prepared for lines.

The buildings are all very close together and easy to access only problem was no one could tell us what day the individual houses were open so we only saw them from street view. The Hardware store was a treasure trove of past goodies!
