Spent an hour here and had an absolutely amazing time. Extremely informative and beautiful. Take the kids here and they will learn more here than in a book. The tour guide was amazing as well!

This is a great way to take your family on an exploration in time travel. A great way to grab look at rural life 100 years ago. This is a family attraction 10 on a 1 to 5 scale. Check their website for special events.
