Inside museum was ok, but outside museum was pretty good. The map was cross-referenced with numbers on the buildings so you could tell what they were. Fairly inexpensive to tour the grounds.

We spent a few hours at this mainly outdoor museum and found it very interesting. Great to see how life was not so very long ago and how people lived and what utensils and tools they had to cope with. Facinating, a true history lesson.
