It is a nice little place to take younger kids (younger than 7 maybe) my kids are older but still had a little fun there doing some of the hands on exhibits.

EarlyWorks Museum Complex is a fun, hands-on experience for children and parents. Filled with educational information about the history of the state of Alabama. My kids loved it.
