engaging. Everyone was entertained! She was well informed and never boring! I also enjoyed the train conductor and his ghost stories. I had the greatest time on such a miserable weather day!

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!

a lot of history here and great people to explain how everything works. It was fun seeing the old barber shop and particularly the old farm equipment

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

It is very kid friendly. Every year they have a Halloween trick and treat event which should not be missed if you are in the local area. There... 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
