I love the idea of showing the historical roots of the earliest inhabitants. It was a very interesting area, a must-see if you are touring the area.

We took our family aging from 69 down to 12. With this wide range of ages everyone found something to catch their interest. From each walk in history, to the animals walking around, the working blacksmith, to each person filling in the history lesson.

History interpreters at the various sites were very informative and helpful, truly a 'living history' experience. Lots of animals too. Recommend renting a golf cart, especially...More

The museum is a nice place to visit on a nice day, but is fairly expensive and does not have the signage one would expect at a museum.

Went here because we had two hours to kill one afternoon on a vacation and was blown away. First, we had small kids and was able to rent a golf cart, which to be honest was one of the reasons why we visited. 2nd each,...More
