Earlyworks Children's History Museum Reviews & Ratings
The kids had fun, but overall it is a bit strange and the strangeness is kind of hard to describe. It seems like a regular museum, which has a few random daycare-like areas integrated in. I wish it integrated more experiential science exhibits, rather than having so much space allocated to dry topics, with oddly integrated kid-oriented aspects. If you have been to science museums in bigger cities you might be disappointed, but the kids will likely have fun since there are a couple areas with toys and play areas.
Great hands on facility with something for kids of nearly any age. They have a room for toddlers and kids that are active where there is a fort like treehouse structure built into a wall as well as a moving water bin where they can fish for magnetic fish and see toy boats move. Deceptively large building and lots of walking space. The big trees talk, though my toddler son was not a fan and seemed frightened of them. Decent size auditorium where they show cartoons. Content covers Alabama history from the 1800s to present. Nice place to bring the kids. $5 for toddlers up to 3. No time limit.They seem to have a partnership with paw patrol as far as characters and merchandising. They also have someone dressed as a character to meet the kids. Located downtown so metered parking is your best bet.If you have a educator ID your discount lets you in for free!
We had an absolutely amazing time here. At first, we were not sure if our kids would engage. The "backyard" is great and our kids had a fun time there, but we finally got them really interested in the giant sized tinker toys. Our son built a monstrosity! We got all of our moneys worth out of building things and raising the flag on the river boat! Additionally, they learn about milking cows, raising hens, baking bread and many other things! We packed a lunch and really appreciated that they catered to this by offering a well appointed place to have a pic-nic! Overall, this museum is small, but packs a big punch.
This museum is very interactive for younger kids but even our 12 year old enjoyed it. The staff is very helpful and friendly. Definitely worth the membership price.
Learned a lot about Alabamas history. My one year old had fun exploring in a non crowded environment. Staff was super friendly and welcoming.
