We enjoyed our visit. We watched the short film and walked around all the grounds. The buildings are set to the period and added to the experience. Of course loved the Oregon Trail swales. We spent about an hour to an hour and a half.

We got there late, ten minutes left in the day, so we didn't pay the extra two bucks for the video and museum. I'd have liked to, but it had already cost us $5 for a park sticker and we wouldn't have had much time...More
