This is an excellent place to visit with the family on a Sunday afternoon. It's a walk down memory lane with all the old homes and displays and a nice walk under huge trees. Very easy to spend an entire afternoon here enjoying the day. We had an awesome time.

There is an assortment of old buildings that are very interesting. They have many events at the Museum and Pioneer Village, you should check their schedule

I love going throught and looking at all the old building and reading up our past history. My kids and Grandkids love to take pictures of themselves in front of the old building, train and keep in their photo book, so they can out at a later day.

Different organizations have supported the transport of historical homes and businesses to this location. You can learn about local pioneers, Indians, and the oil business. There is also a building which houses many items of local significance. Different children's programs are sponsored through the Lori Brock Foundation. I especially love it here for Halloween and Christmas programs when the place becomes lit up at night. You feel transported back to another era. They also have antique shows here. Nice gift shop. Good value for the money.

This museum has many historic houses on it property to look at. there is an oil museum, and a really fun children's museum. tours are given. school tours are available too. We took our students there for the Native American lesson. It can be warm outside, but bring a lunch to eat there. Check the prices--they are expensive, but a year family pass may be cheaper or just a bit more and worth it.
