    The Burritt Museum and State Park
    The view of Huntsville and the Tennessee Valley that you get from here is quite nice! the perfect place to catch a glimpse of what Alabama must have been like a century ago. There are historic log structures, set up to look like they were in 1850. There are also guides who are dressed like the people dressed 150 years ago. Its an unique opportunity to see what the fabled American South lived like. Also to be seen here are some lovely mountain springs, that run into the Tennessee River Valley and the 1840 Big Cove Turnpike. This is the site of the Confederate surrender in Madison County in 1865, towards the close of the American Civil War.

    Less known than the Kennedy Space Center, Huntville's Space and Rocket Center has more to offer than a launch pad. Aside the classic outdoor collection of missiles and rockets, the museum and its attractions are really worthwhile for the space enthusiast. Take the time to enjoy the movie experience in the Spacedome IMAX theatre.

    US Space and Rocket Center

    Nasa Museum and the home of Space Camp. This is Huntsville's one unique must see sight and well worth the trip to Huntsville all in itself.
