First, make sure you realize it is only open Wed.-Sun. 10-4 because it is a little hard to get to. (I goofed and we made a needless trip on Tuesday.) Also, it takes quite awhile if you do everything. I suggest coming at 10, eating a picnic lunch that you can bring in, and then seeing the rest. Also, see if they are filming (which limits where you can go) and if the docents are there. We basically saw the 1700s area (the setting for the Josefina American Doll books) and 1800s area plus the schoolhouse. There was a mountain village area over the hill that we never got to. There is a lot of walking over unpaved paths.
