Wonderful!

The Children's Museum was so cute! A don't-miss spot for anyone with young children. Allow at least 2 hours.

My grandchild loved her day here! Several activities called her back time and again. The costumes and hands-on activities kept her engaged, curious, and busy for three hours! Quite a feat in this day and time.

The good thing about this place is that your ticket includes the Huntsville Train Museum and Constitution park. We went to the train station and it was top knotch! Very cool. This place was ok but could do with more variety we didn't stay very long.

I think this place offers some great experience to our younger generation. Best for ages 8 and under. My granddaughter was outgrowing by age eight. She still wanted to go, but they really didn't have anything for her past that age at the time. She dressed her Grandpaw up like Daniel Boone and got to feed him at the table...fake... More

Our little girl totally enjoyed this place and we will be returning on our next trip to Huntsville. It is a great place for the kids to learn through play. It was a very fun.

Learn something new about your state from talking trees and learn from walk thru groups. Went with a school tour and had a blast!

Lots of fun and learning for kids my 8-13 son and daughter both enjoyed it. Fun walk thru group learning on each area tons for younger kids with activities areas and taking trees and clocks with faces.

This museum was recommended on every tourism website, Huntsville Welcome Center, motel info stands and even the Redstone Arsenal visitors packet. Coupons can be picked up at the Huntsville Welcome Center but we opted instead to purchase a Year Pass for $85 that gets us in to the Depot and Village too. The museum is a kids museum. As an...

We travel 4+ times a year for business & always bring our son so are well versed in children's museums. This one was different in a good way since it focused on Alabama's history. Fun AND informative! My son (3 years old) LOVED the pretend grocery store in Biscuits Play Area. WARNING: they DO NOT have a restaurant/ cafe.
