  • Go! Do a scavenger hunt with the kids, take a class on gardening, come for the Friday night market - tour the museum for free on Friday nights during market. Wonderful history here - working blacksmith shop and wonderful artifacts. So worth your time to wander.
  • Closed for the winter months, opening sometime in May. A collection of old original buildings that have been moved to site creating a tiny village. Friday evenings during summer months, between 4 - 8 pm, you can enjoy a local farmer's market with food trucks, live music, blacksmith demonstration & you can tour the village building's at the same time. Advise you come early, parking lot fills up quickly - parking can be a issue.
  • Really great location for a photo-shoot. The team there was helpful and knowledgeable. There are some very interesting things throughout the museum. Definitely worth visiting!
  • This is a gem of a museum. Historic buildings full of treasures. Lots of great events. Don't miss their Farmers Market on Friday evening from five to eight throughout the summer. Take a class at their Urban Farm School. This place is full of surprises!
  • It very fun🗿
