Lovely historic home & farm turned into a Children's Museum. Our granddaughters love going and exploring. About every year, the museum changes up a few things to keep it interesting. Just walking (or running) around the grounds is nice also.

This historic house is geared towards school groups and giving them a hands-on experience. The house is original and while they do have period pieces nothing inside is original to the house. You can view the house on your own or take a 90 minute to 2 hour tour of the house. I opted to do the house on my own and found the information on the WWII POW camps very interesting. One of the guides did take me to the carriage house, the log cabin and the ice house where I got some more I formation about all the owners.

I have been to several of the events that are held at Rose Hill Manor Park and Museum. The grounds are breathtaking, as is the house. There is so much history there and the events that are held are a fun time for all.

well maintained and operated by very friendly and caring staff. Saw a WWII re-enactors day out there that was awesome. They were very accommodating for camps for the kids as we sent our little fella to Civil War camp there and he loved it. Its a nice spot and very well done.

We take our kids here for the tours as well add the special events and classes being taught. The volunteers are always Tai to work with kids and explain history in a way that they understand. This is s great place to experience different times in history and physically see many examples of it as well. Well worth the visit.
