The staff always does a great job to interact with the visitors. Appreciate the authentic roles, atmosphere, and costumes. I've visited multiple time and each time I learn something new.

This was a nice hands on tour. I recommend a tour so you can learn and do more. The children especially liked sawing wood and making butter. Also, it's on the south side of downtown Naperville, so you have plenty of other activities nearby.

It was a little tricky finding the entrance. We really enjoyed the museum on the lower level--lots of local lore and quirky bits of history. The historic buildings, mostly moved from elsewhere, were inviting, though short on interpreters. The Martin house, which is original to...More

I believe so. The only problem would be if she wanted to see inside a few of the buildings that have second floors and a flight of stairs up to them. You can always call ahead and check.
