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.
