This is a rather unique venue, but the price is considerably steep for what is available at the park. The park is small and there are a number of out buildings, and one huge meeting hall stuck in the middle of it all, but the venue doesn't justify the price. Sorry.

Whenever we have family or guests in town it's a no-brainer to take them to Burritt. It's such a wholesome place and completely unique. Lots of history and especially fun when workers are there in period piece costume. Totally worth it!!

This was a great way to show my 10 year old how people lived, worked, and played in the 188-1900's and he enjoyed it. They had time period games out for the kids and some houses has people working in the time period. We probably took about 3 hours to go through the village and mansion, play with the toys... More

Friendly people & beautiful scenery, but seem confusing & not well organized. Maps & signage are hard to understand. Not great for small children. Animals don't look healthy.

Everyone needs to know the history so we can see how we got to where we are now. This home was extremely informative and the view of Huntsville was incredible.

This is a well-done restoration/recreation of a 1800s village/homestead. Enough history and culture to interest adults and an amazing number of playgrounds, water pools, gold-panning (play), animals and petting areas and puzzle games for children - including, a scavenger hunt on the property which teaches as well as entertains. We had 5 (aged 2-12) children with our 5 adults and... More

Burritt has beautiful scenery, views, and allows you to step back in time. I loved watching sheep shearing, seeing small animals, learning about how they cooked in the past. Fun and education place that allows all ages to have a great time! Wonderful venue for events, weddings, etc.

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
