First impressions can be so lasting. And unfortunately a negative impression can blur the rest of the visit. Stayed at the RV park for one night and could not believe they did not have a restroom. They initially said it was being remodeled and when...More

We traveled here with another couple after hearing about it from friends. It is definitely worth a stop. We really enjoyed the huge museum and all the buildings in the village out back. So much to see.

I first visited Pioneer Village in 1966 during the summer prior to my senior year in high school. The place was still relatively shiny and new, and packed with visitors. My two buddies and I spent an entire August day there. A teenage road trip....More
