We were disappointed that the craft section was not operating.. The housing was interesting in that the breeze ways were also sleeping quarters for summers. The breeze way acted like air conditioning for the house.

This is an outside museum which is located on a couple of city blocks in downtown Montgomery. You are able to step back in time to see a glimpse of the past. The buildings show how people lived and worked. It was a fun experience.
