We spent a good couple hours here which was just about right. Plenty to see and all very interesting. The only disappointment was the train ride which, frankly, was very short and very slow. It's certainly worth the visit but, unless you are with children,...More

Visited this museum on a wet Saturday but found lots to look out and lovely people to talk to. Interesting collection of houses giving a view of a pioneer village. Loved the animals, church and farmhouse, complete with fresh scones.

I defineatly had a good time. There was so much history and really cool things to see. The staff were neat as they have titles like in the old day blacksmith, baker and so on. Also get to go on a train ride!

We spent a day here when the weather was not so great, and learnt lots about the history of the area. Our kids got to make candles, dress up as pioneers, have a school lesson and even tried their hands at being a blacksmith!

A really wonderful place. The authentic buildings are complemented by the staff in period costume who are friendly and knowledgeable. So glad we stopped there.

Not sure what you mean by 'in and out' privileges. We spent 90 minutes to two hours visiting and really enjoyed it, especially talking with staff who were running some of the exhibits. They enjoy their work and shared their... More
