Spent the night in Huntsville, decided to visit on the way out. Grounds are free, parking easy, Excellent display of dwellings where family lived and how they lived. Kids will love all the ducks, chickens and roosters walking freely around the grounds. Docents were friendly and informative.

We went through the park behind the museum. It was so nice and we enjoyed it so much. Buy some chicken feed and feed the wildlife. It was so interesting and so beautiful. There were some baby geese and chickens.

You don't have to leave the comfort or safety of your vehicle to see this beautifully carved headstone. Peaceful setting. Glad we got to see it.

All the houses that Sam Houston lived in are so cool. My kids loved looking at each one and taking pictures by them. Definitely some cool photo ops. There are a few audio parts of the tour that are cool. The grounds are very pretty.
