I and my husband also accompanied my daughters second grade class for a field trip to Pioneer Village. As part of the introduction to Pioneer Village they do go over gun safety with the children, we did not experience any of the unpleasantries that the previous poster talks about. They even went so far as to tell us that if any of the children became frightened by the loudness of the blanks being fired to feel free to leave the presentation and take them over to the gift shop. One of the little girls in the group was afraid and I took her over to the gift shop where the wonderful young girl working shut the gift shop door the block out the sound, called the cat from out of the back room for the little girl to play with and went and got her a warm blanket as she was shaking. She went out of her way to make this a better situation. Neither my husband nor I had been to Pioneer Village since we were young, we were impressed with the amount of work that has been done and had an extremely enjoyable day. We found all the employees and volunteers to be extremely knowlegable and kind. We will be taking the kids back again as soon as the weather cools off some.
