If i remember correctly, admission was $8. You are given the option of a guided tour or to go off on your own. I opted for the tour. First, i watched a brief film on the history of Huntsville and the depot itself. Then an informative guide showed me through the depot. There is one section with wax figures that actually come alive and talk about the daily operations of the depot. The downstairs consists of the men's lobby, the ladies lobby, the ticket office and a small gift area. The second floor has many items on exhibit plus a large model of what the depot and surrounding areas looked like around 1860. The third floor is mostly the preserved graffiti written on the walls from the civil war era and the late 1800's. Outside there are train cars and a locomotive to explore. Behind that, there is a building that is set up to resemble an old gas station. There is a vintage fire engine inside and a few old cars. This is a great little excursion if you are in huntsville.
