A visit here includes historical demonstrations of cooking, laundry, blacksmithing, farm animals, wagons, and other aspects of 19th century life. Very educational for children, in fact some of the guides were children. Goes at a slow pace, so it takes some time, particularly if you...More

Museum was very informative, saw goats, horses, cows and chickens. Entry fee is very reasonable. Can ride a real stagecoach. Takes about 2 hours to see it all, but very worth the time.

One of the best “history museums” I’ve been to! The “living farm” is the real deal. And the interactive museum is very well done. Don’t forget to check out the small gift shop!

This location is very well done. Lots of good info from knowledgeable docents, and watch real people doing typical activities from the period. The stagecoach ride was included and was a good experience.
