Small museum that has lots of special events on many weekends during the summer. Niot open in the off season
A beautiful drive a few miles outside of New Ulm along the river begins the trip back in time. This store is filled with authentic and much ORIGINAL goods from the late 1800s. The store clerk was extremely friendly and chatted with both my children about life in the time period. She was happy to show us glasses, sewing supplies,... More
Enjoyed the friendly staff who explained the history of the Harkin Store. Great little gift shop. Portapotties if you must (and we did). A brief but enjoyable stop. Minnesota Historical Societ members get in free.
It's original, all right. Many itmes in this store are from the original store back in the late 1800s. We had an elderly man who was the tour guide and he explained many things to us and answered all our questions, too. Very much worth the trip there.
This is a cool little place. There is much history packed into one little shop. Depending on the weekend you go, you will find ice cream, or whittlers, or story telling, quilting. Place literally looks like someone just walked out of the door one day 100 years ago and now they opened it back up. Beautiful drive to the site.
I loved how much stuff was packed into this place! And it's not just general stuff, you can see hand written notices from names of real people who are still well known! I just wish the woman giving the tour was a bit more friendly to us..
having driven past this store for years, I decided to stop. A costumed guide was there to tell all about the store, its history, and the many original items still found there. Kids have opportunities to experience a bit of life 100 or so years ago. There is a small gift shop to buy stuff for real.
