I've been to Alabama Constitution Village several times on field trips with my students. I love it. There are working demonstrations for the students to both watch and take part in to learn how things were done in the early days of Huntsville and Alabama. There is everything from a blacksmith, the old post office, a surveyor's office to an... More

Although the park is hard to find and parking is difficult to obtain in downtown Huntsville, this is a jewel of a historical park. The history of this place is well worth knowing. While most of the buildings are reproductions, they are accurately built, furnished with period pieces, and fairly well maintained. Labels and plaques in each building are clear... More

Took a group of 20 to visit this site. We made arrangements to have a catered meal in the village. Musical entertainment was provided and we were also given a tour and some demonstrations of the wood work shop and the black smith shop. Guides were great. What a neat way to spend and evening.

Arrived just after a large school group had been through he museum. The docents were very pleasant, however, we basically did the tour on our own before being given an overview. We found this site interesting. Sadly, lack of funds is allowing this special treasure to deteriorate. Hopefully someone will step forward and see that it is around for many... More

This is a nice historical exhibit with extremely friendly and knowledgeable guides. They seemed to really enjoy their jobs. There is street parking close by. You can spend as much time as you want strolling through the buildings.

Best time to visit is during Panoply. Everything is open to the public then. There is a lot of hands on activities and knowledgeable workers

Sadly this attraction was closed all of January and February which means it was closed however it was a great walk from the Weeden House and Earlyworks so I recommended just to walk around it to see the buildings around it. I also saw the marker showing the spot that it became official that Alabama entered the Union and the... More

Santa's Village has been a tradition for our family for years. But it's apparently everyone else's tradition too. We went on a Saturday evening, with nice warm weather, just as they opened for the evening, and didn't even get to see Santa because the line was just that long. It was uncomfortable just to walk around, it was so packed.... More

My family has visited Santa's Village every Christmas for the past 5 years. Photos with Santa are awesome! They have all kinds of activities for the kids. This is a must if you have young kids. I recommend that you get there when they open at 5 and go straight to Santa. Then follow up with the activities. Santa's line... More
