DescriptionThere are so many interesting and unique attractions in Huntsville. The Huntsville Botanical Garden (256-830-4447) is the home to the nation’s largest seasonal butterfly house with a Children’s Garden adjacent. Right now you can enjoy the summer feature, Tremendous Treehouses! Special exhibits like the Scarecrow Trail, Festival of Flowers and the Galaxy of Lights during the holiday season prove that there’s always something growing on at the botanical garden.

Burritt on the Mountain (256-536-2882) is a living history museum that offers one of the most breathtaking views in the area. Perched high atop a mountain just minutes from downtown, Burritt transports visitors to simpler times. Historic structures from the early 1800’s through the early 20th century grace the grounds at Burritt. Costumed interpreters demonstrate to visitors the fascinating story of life in early North Alabama. Summer activities include kid’s camps and the ever-popular City Lights and Stars Concert Series of outstanding performers.

The U.S. Space & Rocket Center (1-800-63SPACE) is home to U.S. Space Camp and one of just three authentic Saturn V moon rockets. Marvel at this feat of engineering and explore America’s space program in the Davidson Center for Space Exploration.

The Huntsville Museum of Art (256-535-4350) is the new home of The Sellars Collection, the largest American collection of art by women from 1850 – 1940. Adjacent to the museum, you can enjoy a picnic or a relaxing stroll in Big Spring International Park in the heart of downtown.

The EarlyWorks Museum Complex (256-564-8100) consists of EarlyWorks Children’s Museum, Alabama Constitution Village and the Historic Huntsville Depot. Specially discounted combination tickets are available if multiple facilities are visited. EarlyWorks Children’s Museum is the south’s largest hands-on history museum. Step back in time to see how homes were built, stores were stocked and even how people traveled from place to place. This is a great place for toddlers to teens and even adults to learn history through a variety of hands-on and interactive exhibits. Younger children really enjoy Biscuit’s Back Yard, an especially kid-friendly area featuring a water table and smaller scale store, barn and play areas.

Alabama Constitution Village is a re-creation of an entire city block from the early 1800’s when Alabama first became a state. At this living history museum, you can see the site where the Alabama constitutional convention was held in 1819 as well as tour homes and businesses of that period. During the holiday season, the buildings and grounds are transformed into a winter wonderland as Santa’s Village. Special activities and a visit with the jolly old elf himself are offered for the young and young at heart visitors.

The Historic Huntsville Depot (circa 1860) provides a glimpse into the past when trains carried passengers and cargo across the expanding nation. Animatronics bring three old-timers to life to recount daily activities at the Depot. The Depot’s third floor highlights graffiti left by Confederate soldiers who were captured during the Civil War. A “Little Toots” area provides special hands-on experiences for aspiring conductors and engineers.

At Sci-Quest Hands-on Science Center (256-837-0606), science, math and technology are fun! The center features an immersive theater, an interactive playmotion wall and dozens of hand-on displays that bring scientific principles to life and make them fun!

It’s easy to get to Huntsville! Air service into the city on major carriers is available and includes non-stop flights to and from eleven airports across the nation. It’s also an easy drive. We’re located just off I-65 on interstate spur I-565.
