“Love it!”
Reviewed March 3, 2012

Been a fan of the museum since childhood, and into that half century mark, appreciate it even more! Some of the finest examples of archicture have been moved and restored here to create a special working museum.

“fascinating”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

The history and colonial life relived via actors with authentic buildings really educates one along with the museum to early Americana.

“A trip back in time..”
Reviewed February 9, 2012

Since our lasgt visit to the farmer's museum there had been many changes. This time around we were pleased to see a variety of new activities for adults and children alike. The best part of the change was undoubtably the trip my husband and I took on the marry-go-round!

“A day's Museum”
Reviewed January 24, 2012

You need lots of time to walk through this entire village for history buffs: lots to see and actors dressed for that time period to ask ?'s of. Worth the drive (2 1/2 hours for us) The only thing to see in town is the Baseball Museum. Was a nice fall drive through the countryside.
