A must see. Fun and informative! Experience the western Plaines of the old WEST as it becomes more. + more updated due to the railroad and migrations from the eastern part of the country.

This is more than a museum. It is a village where history can be experienced as it was in times of yore. What a joy it is ti see children in period costume enjoying learning. Wher else can you see real oxen pulling a wagon?
