If you have small children, the Farmstead is wonderful. It is very large, lots of walking, and much to do and see. It's part zoo with goats, petting zoo, chickens, rabbits, long horn steer, sheep, etc. It also has a prairie dog village that is fun to watch. Gardens and flowers decorate the area. Benches and porch swings are all around. There is a small lake where the kids can fish, and a dairy barn where they milk the cow, and have baby calves in pens.
Not having kids or grandkids to take, my husband & I go ourselves sometimes for a great walk. I love the prairie era one room schoolhouse. There is a great Indian Lodge complete with furs and things the Indians used everyday. Kids love to "pan" for gold- or jewels- in the mine area.
There are pony rides and hayrack rides.
I think it's a great place to interact with kids in this day and age of electronics and videos. They will learn much of the past on the Plains, and have a great day to remember. Even as adults, it's fun for us. There is an admission price on weekends, but free during the week.A very unique place!
