We were a little disappointed in this attraction. We were lead to believe that there would be people demonstrating in the buildings. The guide was really nice and we enjoyed her time with us.

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.
