  • Wonderful place to experience..We've taken many out of state guests to this excellent and memorable live history museum. Rare and valuable place, not to be missed! The live history workers there are very knowledgeable and interesting!
  • Great place to take the family for a one-time visit or recurring visits! Friendly animals are sure to keep the littlest littles entertained, while the guides have hands-on activities for older littles and adults. Don't miss the fudge in the gift shop!
  • Hidden gem! Brilliant activity for Sunday afternoon with family. Informative guides at each site give you historical background. Live music at 5pm - and food trucks with local wine - makes for a good time.
  • We took a family trip to the frontier culture museum. Even though we arrive late in the day the staff was still very helpful and we show it shared interesting historical information with us. Recommend the stop if you're cutting through Virginia.
  • Very pretty places. Its a good way to pass time w/ the family.
