Attractions in Alabama for Kids:

  • International Motorsports Hall of Fame
    On the same grounds as the Talladega Superspeedway, this hall of fame and museum features millions of dollars worth of vehicles and motorsports memorabilia.

  • McWane Science Center
    Let the kids get their hands on dinosaur bones, watch jellyfish turn colors or play an oversized piano with their feet in Birmingham. A special play area just for small children lets them climb safely, enjoy water play and create special crafts. An IMAX theater is also on-site.

  • National Historic Trail
    This historic route from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama, is the same path civil rights advocates marched in 1965. Visitors can drive the route and visit the National Voting Rights Museum, Slavery and Civil War Museum, Old Depot Museum, Smitherman Museum and the Edmund Pettus Bridge. Once you arrive in Montgomery, the famous Dexter Avenue Baptist Church where Martin Luther King, Jr., preached can be found about a block away from the Alabama Capitol.

  • Rosa Parks Museum
    This Montgomery museum is located on the very spot where Rosa Parks was told to give up her seat on the bus to a white man in 1955. The event triggered the Montgomery bus boycott that the Rosa Parks Museum captures with its artifacts from the era, historical documents and a replica of the bus Parks was on.

  • Talladega Superspeedway
    The longest track in NASCAR is also where one of the most exciting races in the sport takes place. A weekend at Talladega isn't a vacation you'll soon forget.

  • U.S. Space and Rocket Center
    Touch real rockets, watch an IMAX movie and learn about space. Located in Huntsville, the U.S. Space and Rocket Center is also home to Space Camp.
