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

Was up there last year for another event, in my 30+ yrs here in the state it never dawned on me to visit this place. Oh well, my loss. But I will say its better visited when its not hosting another event to be able to actually stop & look at things. The day I was there I was being... More

This is a really neat museum where you can see everything from a full size crop duster to the outside village. There is a farmhouse, church, mill, school, store and other buildings. 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

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.

The outdoor exhibits (church, schoolhouse, farmhouse, etc) are a nice mix of older buildings that have been moved onto the site. The indoor exhibits have a lot of old tractors and other displays of farm life. It's a decent place for kids when visiting the Dover area.

The historic value of this museum and village is amazing, but there is a flock of geese that has taken over the entire outdoor area and poop is everywhere. I am surprised the Delaware State Health Department has not closed them down. We were visiting right when a school group of 3rd to 5th graders was touring, and I shudder... More
