The museum has a great kid's section where they can milk a plastic cow, ride around on little John Deer push cars, collect plastic chicken eggs, visit an old general store stocked with plastic fruit amongst other things. The surrounding parklands are also very nice and have a lot of hiking trails.

We went with our 3 and 5 year old niece and nephew. It was a great activity for them on a hot, rainy day. We didn't realize that there was a kitchen area in the back of the museum, that was their favourite part! Very enjoyable.

This is a fun and interactive museum to bring young children. It is nice to learn about the history of farming in the area. There is a general store where children can play with an old fashioned cash register, check out play food, and mail letters at an old fashioned post office. They have an area dedicated to horses, and... More

They kids played for over an hour in the old fashioned kitchen and store. There were some other very good exhibits of old farm equipment, history and a milking barn. They asked if we could go back next month.

We've been here several times with our grandkids. It's a fun place for ages 2 to 8 or so, with lots of interactive activities for children.

We stopped by when in the area for something else, there are some nice interactive aspects. Cow for milking, chicken eggs to collect, general store with merchandise for playing, (all of the above pretend). Tractors to ride on, some dress up clothes. Probably priced a little higher than I thought it should be.
