I have been to Stuhr twice, passing through in the middle of the summer but I wouldd love to make it for an event. Welcoming guides and very knowledgeable. (Don't miss the blacksmith!). Great attention to detail in the restoration and furnishing of the buildings. As a bonus, their cafe is always open with food available on the grounds at... More

Main building under construction, and being off-season, several other areas were only available for exterior viewing. But they gave us a good discount due to the limitations, and we enjoyed what we could see.

How do you get a child of the internet to "get into" the past? Turn off their computers and iPhones and show them what life was like in the 1890's railroad town at the Stuhr museum. I recently took my great niece to the facility to give her a taste of history. I don't know how deeply everything registered with... More

Stuhr offers special times for school kids to come out. Local schools take advantage of this time. As adults, the museum and all the old buildings are extremely interesting. Grandson recently held his wedding at the Stuhr Museum Gazebo. Staff was very helpful with photos, set-up and take down. Very well laid out so it is not crowded.

We go to Stuhr Museum several times a year. We make sure to make it to the events when we can and on lazy weekend afternoons this is our favorite place to picnic. The ducks walk right up to you and get a little pushy for food. (we usually end up sitting on the tabletop til we are done) I... More

The Stuhr Museum is a great family attraction. The main building was closed for renovations but the Rail Road town was fantastic. The interpreters explain how life was in the 1890's. The blacksmith, tinsmith, wood shop, and hat shop were fantastic. The general mercantile and the saloon are fun shopping experiences. I highly recommend this attraction. Well worth the entrance...
