  • ......on the realism. Tents build with modern day plastic, wood fires using 2x4's as fuel. No one available to explain exhibits except in two spots. Go to the Nation Historic Site rather than here!!

  • We did both the National Historical site and the village. Both were great. Would recommend this more so for families, more interactive. Very inviting and knowledgeable staff.

  • We were on an Ocean cruise with Viking and made the Stop. The weather was great and waking outside was fantastic. We enjoyed seeing what this early village must have looked like.
