You can walk through on your own, but the buildings are kept locked, so it's better with a guide. Only one of the buildings is air-conditioned, but it's a neat place to walk through with the guide if you enjoy history stuff. My husband &...More

It is a quaint place with several old cabins from the area. The "gift shop" is in the office and does not take cards nor is there an ATM machine.

I've done numerous photo ops for seniors/families here at this museum site. There are plenty of options to give you that rustic background. It's got a gravel parking lot and numerous outbuildings. There's also a wooded trail nearby to explore.

It was nice to see the main house and see the carriage house. Throughout the year they have special events for the families.

The place was closed the day we went, so we were unable to go inside the buildings, but just walking around the outside and peeking in the windows was nice. Everything is well marked with good signage, so you know what you're looking at and...More
