Not one persons was present at any of the displays....would assume on a busy Saturday during tourist season their would be one demonstration. My favorite was church, log cabin and school....save your 10 dollars per person.

We were disappointed that the craft section was not operating.. The housing was interesting in that the breeze ways were also sleeping quarters for summers. The breeze way acted like air conditioning for the house.

This is an outside museum which is located on a couple of city blocks in downtown Montgomery. You are able to step back in time to see a glimpse of the past. The buildings show how people lived and worked. It was a fun experience.

Very interesting and informative open air museum with a range of numerous, varied buildings that provide great insight to life in another era. A lot to see. Definitely worth taking time to listen to the guided tours.

Elle, provided a wonderful guided tour of the Ordeman House, the historical information she provided during the house and grounds tour, including the out buildings on the property, was very educational and informative. Highly recommended if you enjoy history!!

We were a little disappointed in this attraction. We were lead to believe that there would be people demonstrating in the buildings. The guide was really nice and we enjoyed her time with us.
