I think this place offers some great experience to our younger generation. Best for ages 8 and under. My granddaughter was outgrowing by age eight. She still wanted to go, but they really didn't have anything for her past that age at the time. She dressed her Grandpaw up like Daniel Boone and got to feed him at the table...fake... More

Our little girl totally enjoyed this place and we will be returning on our next trip to Huntsville. It is a great place for the kids to learn through play. It was a very fun.

Learn something new about your state from talking trees and learn from walk thru groups. Went with a school tour and had a blast!

Lots of fun and learning for kids my 8-13 son and daughter both enjoyed it. Fun walk thru group learning on each area tons for younger kids with activities areas and taking trees and clocks with faces.

This museum was recommended on every tourism website, Huntsville Welcome Center, motel info stands and even the Redstone Arsenal visitors packet. Coupons can be picked up at the Huntsville Welcome Center but we opted instead to purchase a Year Pass for $85 that gets us in to the Depot and Village too. The museum is a kids museum. As an...

We travel 4+ times a year for business & always bring our son so are well versed in children's museums. This one was different in a good way since it focused on Alabama's history. Fun AND informative! My son (3 years old) LOVED the pretend grocery store in Biscuits Play Area. WARNING: they DO NOT have a restaurant/ cafe.

I consider myself an expert when it comes to judging the quality of children's museums. I have been to a lot, and I've found that no matter how nice the exhibits are, if the musical instruments are strewn about in the kitchen and the construction tools have all been thrown in the water play, it's hard to enjoy it. This... More

I lived in Huntsville for 30 years and have been to early works when it opened at 12.00 per person save your money and go to the US Space and Rocket Center instead, went on a Monday and nobody was there, great we had the place to ourselves but there was nothing our twin 6 year olds found new and...

I helped chaperone an elementary class field trip. The staff was great with the children! I would definitely love to go back again.
