  • An excellent place to learn about old farming methods through the demonstration s and architecture. Some buildings had modern aspects, however (modern metal roof), and seemed out of place. We visited on PA Charter Day and thoroughly enjoyed the sheep with their lambs, and the demonstrations of broom making, blacksmithing, etc.
  • I love the demonstrations and the classes you can take. I enjoy the harvest days festival and the one with the plants in spring. The museum feels very open, with a lot of buildings to enter and see. Overall really enjoyed my trips.
  • Step back into culture and challenges and joys of life with no automation, no modern conveniences, no cell phone, no telephone! I participated in the Christmas Carol sing around the huge bonfire!
  • Great place to take kids. Their tour staff is amazing, very knowledgeable and engaging. They have a great little scavenger hunt for hunger kids to keep their interest. Very interesting and educational.
  • We love it here. We always make it a point to stop in while in the area. We recommend this to everyone
