  • Been here to enjoy WWI ans WWII reenactments. Great period exhibits, they go all out for the events.
  • Each event completely transforms this place. Whether it is the Civil War era, WWI, WWII or the permanent museum exhibits, they are all complete immersion experiences. Children, even teens love this as much as the adults. An absolute must for families.
  • Lots of interesting things to learn. Awesome if you go during any of the special events like WW2 days.
  • Very interesting, even if you don't like History.
  • This place is a GEM in Rockford. It's like going back in a time machine to 1900. Many of the buildings were moved here, and all look 100% authentic! The staff that wanders the village and mans the shops are extremely knowledgeable and I learn something new every time. There's also a museum inside that has a ton of great displays and things to look at to learn more about the history of Rockford. This place is great for any age, and we've probably been there 20 times. Always top rate.
