  • A great place for family fun. Take a half day and go explore. There's plenty of things to buy and learn about. They took houses and buildings from all over Missouri to put here, and have living history actors dressed in part to help educate and show how life was back in the 19th century. I watched a kind woman show us how she baked pies and made puddings. It was very educational and fun. Highly recommend.
  • Very disappointed. Tool 2 grandkids ages 4 and 6 on Memorial Day Saturday. Only one docent working, the blacksmith. Very quiet and nothing happening. Sorry but admission was too high for such no presentations. This needs reworking.
  • Really fun outing. Worth the money.
  • Interesting history. Knowledgeable staff and volunteers.
  • What a nice afternoon we spent here. The interpreters were very schooled and eager to pass on their knowledge of the way folks lived in the years prior to the Civil War in this part of the nation. The buildings are authentic to the period of 1820 to 1860 and have been painstakingly moved from their original homes to this wonderful outdoor living museum. A great place for families or those with an interest in history.
