We visited in February and although the buildings were interesting it felt very empty. Given that it's an open air museum I imagine that in the summer there is more staff around dressed in period outfits giving information of the buildings. The animals made the visit worth it - the bears are in hibernation, but there are seals, wolves, elk and a huge owl that we manage to see at feeding time. The souvenir shop was very good.
