Watch out in the tepee for the big spider, but the wildlife is amazing. Flowers, bugs, trees, raccoon tracks, and more! The museum is wonderful. It's a great visit.

Except for the Indian museum, this is a free-fee area. Open on weekends and good weather, you can walk back in time to the time of stage coaches, one-room school houses, jails with sheriffs, and blacksmiths. This is an outdoor facility where you walk and...More
