Huntsville Depot Museum Reviews & Ratings
If you are into a great guided tour about civil war history then this is a great place to visit. Our guide Winter was very knowledgeable and explained everything we saw thoroughly. There is a lot of neat stuff here and you will learn a lot. It doesn't look like much at first but, their is a lot of history here. The tour guide is essential as they explain things you never would have picked up if it were self guided. I believe this is a must visit if you have a few days in Huntsville.
What a neat place to go visit. You feel like you have gone back in time. The Train Depot has always been my favorite part. So much history downstairs and upstairs. Includes items and history of the Civil War and of the South.
The tour guide was rarely engaging. The Museum was doing renovations and the tour guide continued to talk during the drilling/sawing which meant we hardly could understand what he was saying between the gaps. The best part was the hands-on where kids could climb and touch the trains.
Loved the kid area, they have so many kitchen items. There's a cash register with play money. They have a lot of dress up clothes for boys and girls. Toy's for smaller kids. The had a train and a truck to play in and climb on. We didn't even have time to tour the rest of the place, we spent so much time in the kid room.
Big fun for our littles and very finn for me too
