We took both the bus tour and the ground tour. It was enjoyable and the tour guides gave lots of information.

There are 3 museum type attractions linked here in Huntsville and this is one of them. We bought an annual pass so we could have 365 days of admission to all three for less than the price of one visit to all three. Today however we only visited the Constitution Village. As it was Saturday the metered parking out front was free. To our surprise, we were practically the only ones there at 2 pm. We joined a couple midway through a tour and listened to early 1800's Alabama history as we walked through a blacksmith shop, carpentry shop, print shop, post office and various residences. My otherwise rambunctious children were relatively well behaved and appeared to actually pay attention to adults speaking for once. I certainly recommend this tour for a nice 2 or 3 hour diversion.

Just happened to find this as we were driving around to see the old homes. It was a very interesting and informative, an unexpected treat.

We went with our 10 and 14 year old and all of our enjoyed the 1 hour of history, mostly history of different trades and how people lived 200 years ago. None of the buildings are original but were built according to pictures and documentation of buildings that used to be on that spot before someone tore them down for a parking lot.:-(
As far as we could tell they were made very authentically including blown glass windows and a furniture maker's shop with all the old tools and our guides excellent description and demonstration of how the tools were used.

Located in the area where the Alabama constitution was written in 1819, it's a good slice of life in the early 1800's. Our tour guides were very nice and knowledgeable and we very much enjoyed our visit.
