    Absolutely a must see if you have even the slightest interest in motorcycles. This place has the best of the best and the displays are some of the most spectacular I have seen. Whether you are a bike enthusiast or not...this museum will not disappoint!

    This park is absolutely gorgeous. There are a number of ways to go on trails and we explored it all over about 3 different days of our visit. Free bikes were the icing on the cake. You do need a cell phone for each bike that you rent though. Absolutely loved the beautiful nature.

    A profound journey through American history and the Civil Rights Movement. The exhibits are thoughtfully curated, providing deep insights into the struggles and triumphs. Engaging multimedia elements enhance the emotional impact. The Institute fosters reflection and dialogue, encouraging visitors to contemplate the significance of equality and justice. The staff's passion for sharing this crucial narrative is evident. A must-visit destination that leaves a lasting impression.

    Wow.....a very enlightening experience. I think every American should go here. It was a very solemn space, very thought provoking and respectful. Brought me to tears at times. I am so very glad that I got to see this reality of a very sad time of our country. I gave it a five as this museum was moving and done very well. The staff was amazing also.

    We visited the Huntsville Botanical Gardens and loved it.
    Daffodils poked their heads above the red clay. Pansies bloomed and made a colorful border. The sweet smell of hyacinths wafted throughout the gardens.
    It was cold but sunny. One Mallard duck paddled through the pond which was fed by a glowing fountain.
    Most of the paths are paved and not very steep. Trails are easy to follow. However, it's a big place so be sure to set aside two or three hours to explore it.
    We thought the admission prices were reasonable. There's also a nice gift shop to browse through.
    This is a lovely place to visit any time of year. There's always something blooming here.

    We first went to Legacy Museum and then came here. It's a good experience for the whole family, kids and us alike. We are immigrants but our kids are born here. So I didn't learn a lot about how the slaves came over and all. My kids were the ones teaching us as we went around, and how slaves were just lynched for just any reason!

    Hands on learning displays that teach scientific concepts. Geared for children, not so great for adults. Imax is great.

    You really get to wander at your leisure into almost every nook & cranny. And there are a lot of those to wander through. Some in total darkness. This place is interesting on so many levels, the desolation, natural surrounding beauty, industrial yet almost stylish architecture, grand scale, history, and the geological weathering of the structure.

    The view is amazing!!! We went to see Vulcan but didn’t realize that the view of Birmingham would be the star of the show. The museum is really good as well

    I have been coming here for years. Restaurant selection is decent, there should be more options. Aside from shopping and eating, there’s not much else to do, should build a put-put, playground, bowling alley. Also, this place is behind the times they need Tesla superchargers, this is a big opportunity as there are non for 25 miles, this would bring people like me to the wharf more often.
