Oh, what a fabulous way to spend an afternoon!
Early Works Children’s Museum is a HUGE history museum, focused on the timeline of the State of Alabama, but geared specifically for kids!
Hours upon hours worth of fascinating hands-on exhibits throughout a VERY well done series of rooms themed by historical era.
Run an old-fashioned general store market, hear legends from the Story Tree, make music, dress up in period costumes, cook a meal over an open hearth…
Spin cotton, board a wagon towards new discoveries, work on a flatboat…
Immerse yourself in Black and African History, and honor the contributions of Black Leaders.
Don’t forget local Alabama Historical figures, such as Helen Keller.
And, even the littlest of littles will actively engage their minds playing in the Toddler Room.
We LOVE Early Works!
The Early Works Children’s History Museum is a unit within the Early Works Family of Museums, which also includes Alabama Constitution Hall Park and Museum, and the Historic Huntsville Depot.
All the units together can make a busy day of fun, or even a full and fabulous educational weekend getaway.
One membership gets you admission to all 3 locations!
I find this group of museums to be fairly unique in scope to have such a focus on history that is very specifically geared towards younger children.
Sometimes history can feel dry, or boring, but not within the Early Works Family of Museums!
Learn about the people, the culture, and the customs of life in the South after the Revolutionary War.
Get up close and personal with experiencing Alabama from the beginning!
