The museum area was the venue for the wedding we attended. There was another one earlier. This is a great place as a venue, lots of places for pictures(weather permitting). Things to see while waiting, clean bathrooms. Good security. Friendly staff. Lots of parking.

the administration/ lobby of the building looks modern but once you step through you get a glimpse of the olden days. Great for school trips, anyone who likes museums and are interested in history. Also offers classes here and they have a great pottery studio.

The buildings are excellent but are not left open. Just look at the map of the buildings and choose a few buildings you want to see inside. Then ask for a tour. Staff are history experts and happy to show you are around. The houses,...More

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad you had a wonderful time. The buildings are opened during special events, like Applefest and Scaryfest. Scaryfest is coming up, and our Blacksmith forge will be in action. Have a great day!

Came with a three year old and a 14 year old. They really enjoyed the construction exhibit (especially the roller coaster construction). The outside area is beautiful -- love the old buildings and the trees. It was disappointing that you couldn't get into them easily....More

Kind of empty here without events, I picked the place because I stayed in Monte Carlo Inn, it's a bus at the front of hotel and can transfer one bus to here. The exhibition is poor without organized things.More
