Well the new waterfall and auto museum have opened up now so I can understand how people would have previously been a little underwhelmed coming here. Honestly, for my wife and I, this was an ideal place to spend the morning. $12 per person is a little pricey but there really is a lot to see in here. Of course there's the enormous grounds to roam, but spread out along the pathways is a really cool old car museum (neither my wife or I are into cars, and we both found it to be really interesting), there's a little folk art museum, a 100-year-old operational carousel (A very fun, and safe, and free ride) There was another little history museum highlighting some military stuff and historical gravestones, an authentic old windmill, and a very nice little outdoor covered cafe where we ate lunch. Honestly, I don't know any other place you could do all that for $12. (Well, ok the lunch isn't included of course.)
I like the cell phone tour also, at each point you could call a number on your cell phone to hear an explanation or history of the particular plant or building you were looking at.
We found a $3 off admission coupon in the Sandwich published tourist booklet. Plus I saw they honored all kind of other discounts for certain memberships. $6 for kids could be steep if you have a big family, but for my wife and I this was the perfect place. We thought we'd spend an hour or 2 there, we ended up spending nearly 4 hours there!
Overall, it just a nice peaceful and refreshing morning. We'll definitely return someday.
