  • What a great way to spend an afternoon. So many neat things to see. It is a self-guided tour through all the buildings and they have cell phone stops throughout the entire place which is neat kids as well. I have drove up there which is an hour and a half several times to take the family there. They do have a small gift shop as well.
  • This place has so much to see and so much interaction. They have renovated almost every building to be set in the correct time period to give you an accurate idea of how people lived and worked back then. They have put a lot of work into this place! Highly recommend!
  • It's a national historic landmark, its amazingly cool, and at the same time kinda boring. But if history is your thing, its well preserved, and everything you could want in a national historic landmark.
  • Was very interesting and well presented....will go back again
  • Fantastic. Important US history. We needed a couple hours to see everything.
