Full of historical exhibits and artifacts. Hands on for some of it and very helpful staff. I visit at least once a year and there is always something a little different.

This is a must do for anyone with small children or if you are looking after some littles. There is hours and hours of entertainment...and as an adult it's not terrible either.

First time here in almost 2 decades. We were very pleasantly surprised at how well laid out all the exhibits were. The vehicles/farm machinery here are absolutely awesome. Great picture of what it was like to live on the prairies in the early 20th century....More
