Open space and helpful staff!

Fun for all ages! The kids loved the "hands on" of the displays and it was informative for adults too. We loved the area with the grocery store, chicken coop and fishing area.

We have only been once and I really did not care for it. We have a 2.5 year old and the only thing he really liked was a house that you could play in and the large instruments that would play music. I know a lot of people who really enjoy it but I just wasn't impressed. There really wasn't... More

We've held a membership at Earlyworks and used it frequently. My children have learned so much from their Alabama history exhibits.

Our 2 1/2-yr-old nephew and niece came to town during the rainy Independence Day weekend. We are SO thankful to have decided to visit this museum! The twins were entertained for hours! Our 14-yr-old niece was with us, too, and though the museum was a little "young" for her, she had fun being with the twins and she appreciated how... More

I think this is a great place for young kids 6 and under , or adults to enjoy the history , some of the employee's seem to get annoyed with the kids which begs the question WHY take a job that caters to kids . it is worth a visit

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
