As an American history teacher, I love this place! Treat yourself. Each building and all of the spots within are worth looking at, children and adult. The grounds and environs are beautifully kept. Pick up souvenirs or treats.

Love this village. Looking in the buildings or just walking around it is an enjoyable experience. Docents are informative. Some displays are hands on especially with kids (potter esp). In the spring there are the lambs and calves.
