Great museum and outdoor exhibits. We went on a blustery December day, but it was still an enjoyable visit. Our son couldn't wait to take his Grandpa from Iowa there when they came for a visit!

Visited recently with a 10 yo girl and 12 yo boy and had problems getting them to leave. We arrived early afternoon and spent two plus hours there looking at the way things used to be. They loved feeding the chickens and playing school and church in the respective buildings. The curators were knowledgeable and eager to teach but did... More

I am a little biased as I work at this museum as a volunteer curator. If you have young children, this is a wonderful opportunity for them to see what life was like back in the 1800s and early 1900s. There are many guided tours and hands on demonstrations. There is an original log cabin, a farmhouse, schoolhouse, barbershop, railroad... More

A fun visit with grandparents who remember using the tools! Lots of things to look at and touch, especially like the buildings outside which reflect different eras and cultures. Sometimes great art exhibits inside too.
