Glad we visited but we won't return. It seems this warehouse is where all old historical farm equipment and old vehicles have gone to die. Equipment/ vehicle explanations are vague which is very unfortunate and the museum seems badly maintained. We walked away without that...More

What a nice experience we had. The museum took us back to our years when we were young. They give kids the opportunity to milk and experience the activities on a farm.
