“Interactive children's museum focused on teaching about Alabama history. From the stuffed dogs, to the play areas there is easily 2+ hours of activities. There is a wide variety of things to do for the kids, such as dressing up as a fire chief, policeman, construction worker, "fishing" in the water, picking corn & vegetables, putting on a puppet show, as well as all the learning stations.”

“During the Civil War, this depot was a prison for captured Confederates and a hospital for the wounded. It's an interesting informative place for someone who likes history about the town of Huntsville, the civil war, and trains it self. A good place for kids to learn.”
