Absolutely amazing to see so much history, and "authentic" history at that, showing life as it was in another time. The visitors centre is a must.

Not only can you get a tour of the old Alabama town to relive history of Montgomery but they have a great museum/visitor's center. There is also an attached playground and it's convenient to downtown dining and shops.
