Our family visited the Village on its opening day. Cheerful box office staff in a well-stocked gift shop with locally handmade products, knowledgeable guided tour from a fellow who knew his subject matter, and an all round pleasant experience. Highly recommended!

No, it doesn't open until April, lots of outdoor stuff, so needs to be not so muddy or snowy. Lots of seasonal stuff and events there, cannot post a link for some weird reason.
