A number of historic buildings were relocated and set up in 2 blocks, then decorated in their period. The school room was hosted by a period actor and he made it all so real. There were a number of school groups there on the day...More
This is a small area with authentically restored/furnished buildings (set up to look like a little village). We took the self-guided tour (we like to move at our own pace) but they do offer group tours. They did a great job restoring and furnishing the...More

Not one persons was present at any of the displays....would assume on a busy Saturday during tourist season their would be one demonstration. My favorite was church, log cabin and school....save your 10 dollars per person.

We were disappointed that the craft section was not operating.. The housing was interesting in that the breeze ways were also sleeping quarters for summers. The breeze way acted like air conditioning for the house.
This is an outside museum which is located on a couple of city blocks in downtown Montgomery. You are able to step back in time to see a glimpse of the past. The buildings show how people lived and worked. It was a fun experience.

The parking is excellent and easily accessible to the attraction. Most of the houses are not wheelchair accessible but he could get a good view of the outside and most of the other buildings are wheelchair accessible and is a wonderful and educational activity. Personally, the best time to go is spring or fall.The first time I toured Old Alabama Town was in the spring and the weather was perfect. Last summer my boys and I went in July and it was miserably hot. I hope this helps.
