This was a good history activity for children. Me and mine (6 and 11) spent all morning here. There is a kind of treasure hunt, which clues were way too difficult to find, but which answers were easy enough to guess. The topic was Time Traveler and they had a beginning to the history lesson a tunnel with pictures and... More

It was an interesting experience. There is a variety to see and do. The mansion tour was self guided and intriguing but it is not much of a mansion by today's standards. The barnyard animals feel a little out of place, but the children running around seemed to enjoy them. The exhibit they had set up made for some good... More

This place was suggested by the Huntsville Visitor Center. We had not planned to go there but are so glad we did. There is a beautiful view of Huntsville below and several hiking trails that you can take advantage of. There is the mansion of Dr. Burritt that you can tour. We met a wonderful gentleman who works in there... More

Lots for kids, nothing for adults. You will be making the sacrifice taking your kids here. More attractions for them then I can count, but it's hot, shade is limited, once your outside touring the facility air conditioning and restrooms are hard to find. But if you plan for that in advance your kids will have a great day.

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.
