My family visited Burritt on the Mountain two months ago. The place is a former estate located on about ten acres of land in Monte Sano overlooking Huntsville. The museum is comprised of the old mansion, visitors center, a conference center/wedding venue, and a collection of authentic 19th century houses from around Alabama that were relocated to the park. In... More

My husband and I wanted to visit a place that was reasonably priced. It costs $20 for both of us to visit. You tour old cabins built in 1850'S. There are different types of cabins and antique furniture. You can visit blacksmith shop and animals on the farm. There is a nice barn that can be rented but not toured.... More

The drive is easy and you go through the gift shop to get your tickets. When you enter the area there are several old style buildings. There are also people in period dress to tell you about the building. My problem was it was not totally like the period. there were modern day dishes on some of the tables, as... More

My wife saw a brochure for Burritt on the mountain. Was very interesting to learn about the history of this mansion and property. The day we visited there was a wedding that occurred. What a beautiful place to get married. This was a great way to spend the afternoon.

The view of Huntsville was incredible! And Dr. Burrit's house was quite interesting - with the Art Noveau style in the main areas, and interesting ironwork items in other rooms. and my dad loved the '49 Desoto in the garage. The setting is what makes the place.

The view was worth it. The staff was great. The only problem we had was a crazy volunteer who wad rude and also lied to us. Once we got away from her it was great.

Kids really enjoyed it and great views! We ended up joining for a year. They even were able to credit what we had paid for the day. Many activities for the kids!

It started with, you can't go inside the church and you can not go to the overlook and don't go to the house until the person gets back from getting coffee. They were setting up for a wedding, which they didn't mention until we paid. We eventually stopped by the house and looked about, and then to the the old... More

WOW we must have really dropped the ball! If our visitors have a negative experience we are highly disappointed but for you to have a negative experience in multiple areas of our park is unacceptable. I have forwarded your review to our staff and all management. I am sure that at our next staff meeting this will generate conversation and... More

Visited the mansion and museum on a beautiful May day. We appreciated the free admission for mothers on Mother's Day. The visit to the mansion was outstanding. Our docent Tyler very knowledgeable and did a great job of presenting the mansion to us. He should be commended for his hospitality. He played the beautiful historic Steinway piano in the living...
