3 Museums ONE INCREDIBLE ADVENTURE!
EarlyWorks Children's Museum
EarlyWorks was designed for children – go ahead … touch, climb, pull, explore the South’s largest hands-on history museum. Hear stories from the Talking Tree, play a tune on the giant-sized instruments at the Alabama bandstand and try your hand at building in the Kidstruction Zone. Explore a 46-foot Keelboat, trade your wares at the General Store and try on 1800’s clothing in the federal house. Pre-schoolers will enjoy exploring Biscuit’s Backyard and Hideout, a touch-and-learn area designed especially for them, which includes a garden, grocery store, water table tree house and even a cow to milk.
