“Fun and Interactive!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2014

This is a fun and interactive museum to bring young children. It is nice to learn about the history of farming in the area. There is a general store where children can play with an old fashioned cash register, check out play food, and mail letters at an old fashioned post office. They have an area dedicated to horses, and a "cow" they can "milk." It is a great place to go on a rainy day and keep the kids busy!

“Kids had a great time”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2014

They kids played for over an hour in the old fashioned kitchen and store. There were some other very good exhibits of old farm equipment, history and a milking barn. They asked if we could go back next month.

“Great Fun for kids!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We've been here several times with our grandkids. It's a fun place for ages 2 to 8 or so, with lots of interactive activities for children. The play store is especially popular, as are the toy ride-on tractors and the full sized plastic cow you can "milk." About a third of the museum is the kids area, and the rest of the large room is the actual museum, with exhibits of farm machinery and a cut-out farm "kitchen" you can go in. If you are just visiting with adults or teens, you might find the displays a little too basic, but young families will like it. There is a lot to do in the park as well, especially if you walk over to the Claude Moore Park Visitor Center to see the pond and walk on the trails.
