“Great place to visit!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

A wonderful piece of history. I have been several times and enjoy it each time. The prices in the "grocery store" are interesting and you get a surprise ending to the tour when watching the film!

“Good tour”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This is like stepping back in the 1930's. Unique how it resembles a town, down to an upcoming storm, and wagon stuck in the mud. Lot of history and great tour for kids.
