I used the Grand Hall at the EarlyWorks Children's Museum for my wedding reception. It was fantastic! Absolutely beautiful. The staff is so sweet and helped me when I went into full bride mode. We even opened the museum for our family and friends as a private party. Everyone loved it! For brides looking for a great place that is... More

We spent a Saturday morning with our granddaughters (6, 4, and 2) at the EarlyWorks Children’s History Museum. This is just one part of the Earlyworks Museum Complex in Huntsville, AL. Here you can learn about the history of Alabama beginning with the Native American cultures. This museum is a very interactive experience. The girls tried on period clothing from... More

We visited with 5 kids ages 3-11. The younger kids had a blast but the older kids were bored. It was still great for a rainy day outing!

We had an absolutely amazing time here. At first, we were not sure if our kids would engage. The "backyard" is great and our kids had a fun time there, but we finally got them really interested in the giant sized tinker toys. Our son built a monstrosity! We got all of our moneys worth out of building things and... More

We took my niece there and everyone - especially my one year old niece - had a great time. It offers something for a wide range of age groups and event he adults have fun watching and playing too

I've taken children of all ages to this museum. The preschoolers love Biscuit's Backyard where they can play at a giant water table, "dig" potatoes or pull ears of corn from the garden, check under the sitting hens for eggs, pretend to mild the cow, play in the barn, explore the secret hiding places in the fort, play shop keeper...

Liked the interactiveness of the exhibits and found it rather entertaining while with my grandkids ages 9 and 11 - they might have been a bit old to really get the most out of it, but they made 3 hours fly by us pretty fast - so, I do recommend this for the little ones.

My grandchild loved her day here! Several activities called her back time and again. The costumes and hands-on activities kept her engaged, curious, and busy for three hours! Quite a feat in this day and time.
