I enjoy history and letting my great-grandchildren understand what life was like many years ago. We were able to experience a stage coach ride, view the barns, watch a black smith work, feed the chickens, and look through the house. People in period costumes were there to explain what we were seeing. It was a wonderful day with the children!

Was not overly impressed with this. Staff was wonderful and informative, just did not expect it to be in the middle of town, and was disappointed that the stagecoach ride was so short. Also very crowded. Special provisions should be made for large groups so they do not dominate everyone's visit at a place like this.

This type of 'living museum' is a great place to visit. Especially with kids. You pay an admission(based on person's age & resident of area). You can also pay a little extra for the stage coach ride & depending what activity. There seems to always be something going on, that would educate little ones. From the women in the cellar... More

I have lived here all my life and I have been to the Mahaffie stagecoach stop 3 times. It has grown to include festivals in the summer. Great example of a wonderful house, black smithing shop, animals and a real stagecoach to ride it. Wonderful new museum/gift store. If you are here or close b, it's a great places to... More

We initially went on a Friday but the receptionist convinced us to come back on Saturday as they had demonstrations and people dressed in period costume. My understanding is that this occurs every weekend. We were very happy with the visit where we actually got to ride in a real, functioning stage coach. The black smith demo was entertaining. This...

we went during a Wild West weekend in Fall and thoroughly enjoyed the activities from Mexican dancing in authentic costume, to the yard games, and historical tent villages set up to replicate life in "the good ol' days". The stagecoach ride was brief, but unique and entertaining, and all of the tradesmen and cowboys in costume were neat to see.... More

Even though it was closed during the week they let us tag along with a school group. We even were able to ride the stage coach. All of their staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

Mahaffie Farm is a great place to see just how folks lived along the trails going west. The farmhouse is really great to go into and look around. The stagecoach and blacksmith shop are my favorites. Wild West Days in September is a great time to visit. It is a big outdoor event and the kids will love seeing the... More

This is a very cool place that tells the history of Olathe and the Mahaffie family. Great museum with artifacts found on the grounds. Old house is neat to check out as well. They have livestock and you can take a ride in a stagecoach!!!
