This is one great museum to visit. Everything is hands on, you and your family can touch and photograph everything exposed, and experience in your imagination the life lived by the locals years ago. A must see venue.

This was such a cool place to visit. It was a trip back in time. I found this on Groupon and it was worth the cost. I had been to Lake Geneva many many times and had never been here. Highly recommend seeing it.
