We have been to Huntsville many times, but this was the first time we stopped at Burritt on the Mountain. We arrived at 2:45 PM and expected to have plenty of time to explore the grounds. We were wrong. They closed at 4:00 PM - which was not enough time to see everything. We did our best to see as... More

We went during their annual family on the farm event. Got to see quilting, butter making, sheep shearing and just admire the beautiful grounds. Very close to Monte Sano State Park

I hadn't been up to this place in years, and it was like looking at it for the first time again. I loved having children with us that got to see and feel what life so long ago looked like. Great place to educate not just children, but adults as well.

The views from this place are incredible. The home and grounds are pretty. We arrived at 3:15 thinking we had plenty of time because the website it closed at 5. The lady behind the counter said it closed at 4 and that we didn't have time to see it all, so she didn't even offer to sell us tickets. We... More

The museum itself is average, but has improved tremendously over the last ten years. The outdoor collection of historic buildings is the true reason for visiting this park. My grandchild had the best time touring the old farm village, and was enchanted by the guides in costume. I believe that we have created a young history buff! Thank you! Also,... More

Burritt on the Mountain truly is located at the highest point in the city. The views are spectacular, especially in the fall when the trees are so colorful. The staff was friendly and we enjoyed our tour of the "mansion". It was built by someone who was a bit eccentric which is evident in the design and fixtures. We were... More

Burritt on the Mountain is situated on Monte Sano mountain, and the views of Huntsville (down in the valley) are terrific. Dr. Burritt's mansion now serves as a museum, and you can tour 19th century homes that have been relocated and rebuilt on the grounds. It's very child friendly, and it's a great place to spend an hour or two... More

I unfortunately didn't have time to tour the entire area, but I'll at least review on what I was able to. The grounds were very well taken care of and the drive through the trees to get there was beautiful. The gift shop was very cute and the staff were very helpful and friendly. I can't wait to come back... More

Burritt on the Mountain offers a spectacular view of Huntsville. There's a home you can tour, trails you can hike, and an historic village you can walk through which made me appreciate the many modern conveniences I take for granted. There is an admission charge which is discounted if you went to the Visitors Center and got the coupons. Only... More

The Burritt mansion is an interesting walk-thru but the real treat is out back. There are two villages: one of 1850 Alabama and the other of 1900 Alabama. We like to see the crafts and talk to the crafts people. Burritt has frequent programs so there is lots of enjoyment for kids and adults.
