We were visiting the Denver area and it was suggested that we check this museum out as our daughter would enjoy it. Upon arrival we were greeting by the museum security (a peacock) and the volunteers at the front desk were very friendly and helpful. We decided to start on the 1860s farm as it was really starting to get hot and we wanted to get the heat over with. The volunteer spinning wool in the cabin was very nice. We wanted to stay in the cellar all day! We went back into the museum to cool off before heading to the 1890s farm. We were surprisingly comfortable during the blacksmith demonstration (nice breeze) and not too hot in the farm house. Great construction back in the day must have helped keep people cool. Kids enjoyed the museum and grounds quite a bit. It's nice and FREE!

Step back in time and enjoy the simplicity. Spring is a great time to come here. The lambs and piglets are just adorable.

Not too much to tire you out, take a break from life and visit the Museum. Bring along the kids, or go with some friends. A photographer friendly place as well.

Our family loves to visit LHM, and I've been going since I was a little girl. They always have great activities at the farm for kids and its a great outdoor activity. The best time to go is in the Spring if you want to spend your time wandering around the farm house, school house, blacksmith's and farm yard. Or, our favorite holiday tradition is their holiday night in mid December with carriage rides, gingerbread, and cider as well as carolers, bell choir and so much fun!!

For a hands-on experience of life in the 1900s, visit this free, self-guided museum with it's vintage houses, barn, blacksmith shop, one-room school house and various animals. The musuem has regular programs such as Dairy Day (milk a cow, churn butter, eat home-made ice cream), sheep shearing, old-fashioned Christmas and Halloween celebrations. A wonderful place for families...now I enjoy taking my grandchildren.
