  • Educational and beautiful in nice weather. The costumed staff really share their love of history and enjoy children asking questions and trying their hands at tasks the early settlers did.
  • Loved the openness of everything. Lots of opportinity to touch things and play. Especially the gold panning station bringing kids and adults together in an eager search for gold. We had a musket demonstration which was fantastic!
  • Lovley Place, Intresting, Stuff for kids as well. Bring somthing against mosquitoes and all will be well.
  • We got to see blacksmithing live. Very informative!
  • Great place for kids to visit and see how life was lived during the fur trade. Has a collection of authentic buildings, and trades people will tell you about their job historically.
