Immerse Yourself in the Past around Burritt

Designed for families with children ages 3 to 12 years old, Blast in the Past offers engaging hands-on experiences that provide a glimpse into the lives of early Alabamians. Let your kids dive into history as they dress up in period clothing, enjoy pretending to cook and clean in an 1800s kitchen, and discover how to wash clothes using a traditional scrub board. Watch as they learn how to weave on a loom and enjoy building their very own kid-sized “log” cabin. But the fun doesn’t stop there! Children can dig in a garden, try their luck at panning for gems, and experience a day at school using slates and chalk. Don’t forget to visit “Boxy,” our faux cow, for a hands-on milking experience that kids won’t soon forget..
