Takes you back (about 300) to what life was like in the area, why the poeple wanted to leave for America and their journey to the new world and where they settled in the USA.
Very well done with authentic (mostly) buildings from each period...More
Three families with children visited together to attend the Bluegrass festival. Overall a fantastic experience. Great music, fantastic venue and a beautiful sunny day. Had it been rainy it wouldn’t have been enjoyable as the music venues are mostly outside. So, on the positive side,...More

Only downside was the extortionate prices for food and...More

We went here today with an 8 year old and a 3 year old boy. We were wondering would they be entertained and interested at all but thankfully they were! The information was lost on the 3 year old but our older son definitely learnt...More
