The exhibits were really good and a lot of period items. Unfortunately for our group, our guide was a bit inexperienced and couldn't answer all of our questions, though he did know most of them. We were there in an off time and maybe the more experienced ones work busier times. The house contains lots of period furniture, but what we went for was to learn more about the service performed by the Indian agent and the Native Americans. Here it was quite informative and they had quite a few exhibits pertaining to the many Native American tribes in the North. It is a beautiful setting. Parking is plentiful and admission is $6 senior and veterans are free. Thank you for that.

Guided tour was exceptional in describing administration of government system for interactions and treaties between Native Americans and early settlers. Also description of living conditions in the mid-1800s. Posted maps were helpful in understanding history. Included a house tour and viewing of antique dishes and candle making supplies. The tour guide was able to answer questions in great detail as well as recommend resources for historical research and discuss options for school tours.

We learned a lot while on this tour and enjoyed the artifacts from the period. There were lots of stories told about the era and how business was managed. This is a great stop to take in new learnings and enjoy the period decor in a very please setting. Allow time to take in each room of the house. Our guide was very knowledgeable and fun to chat with.

We found that the woman working when we visited knew very little about the exhibits. She couldn't answer many of our questions. Perhaps a little more detailed training would be very helpful?

This is just down the road from the Fort Winnebago Surgeon's Quarters and the docent here was equally engaging. Great stories from the family that built the house and lived there. Same admission price (veterans free and seniors $6). Well worth the stop.
