Historic Huntsville Depot – Huntsville, Alabama – 04/20/2016

Most kids LOVE trains!

Mine always have!

The Historic Huntsville Depot has an extensive collection of both indoor and outdoor exhibits through all eras of railroad history in and around the Alabama region.

The Huntsville Depot was a passenger station until the late 1960’s. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, this preserved historic facility offers great fun for all ages. Even the youngest kids will enjoy playing in the Little Toots play area!

Historic Huntsville Depot is a unit within the Early Works Family of Museums, which also includes Alabama Constitution Hall Park and Museum, and The Early Works Children’s History Museum

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!
