My family visited Rickwood last month on a trip to Birmingham. This was one of the highlights of the trip to me. We visited during a day where there was no game, and other than a staff member or volunteer of some sort, we were the only people there. Look for the self-guided tour brochure near the entrance; it's full of good information about the park's history.
Because there was no game that day, we were able to go just about anywhere in the park we wanted (only the press box was locked). We traversed the concourse and stands, then made our way down onto the field, where my almost 4-year-old son ran the bases to his heart's content and enjoyed sitting in the dugout. My wife and I walked the circumference of the field, checking out the old signs and even the original concrete wall behind the "regular" outfield fence.
If you enjoy baseball history, this is a must-see.
