We made a visit to this Museum as my husband is interested in all types of agricultural equipment. The museum has a lot to offer showing how things were done years ago. Many out buildings including a church, woodworking, milling, a cider press and a little school that will remind you of the school on "Little House on the Prairie".... More

She was so informative every time we visited, but this time when we visited, she wasn't there. She had great stories about growing up on a farm in MD. She ed usually in the kitchen and did school tours. What happened!?

Visited this fine Museum/Village on a post-Winter day in Delaware. Transplants from Pa. Saw it before, but joined Public TV station in Philadelphia and noticed they give a discount with your card, so I looked it up and it sounded interesting. By the way, it is cheap to get in anyway. Lots to see/do, great for kids over 8 I... More

The visit to the Ag Museum when the theme is "Farmer's Christmas" it is like your back home for Christmas and the year is December 25,1690. The Museum is decorated with many Christmas Trees, and lots of lights. The best part is taking a stroll through the village and all of the period buildings, like the old Farm House, with... More

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!

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
