  • We explored around the living history museum and the store. Very friendly and welcoming staff that we chatted with. Can't wait to go back and see more of the characters in costume.
  • This was an amazing experience. Kids lived it. Makes you feel like you went back in time.
  • Neat place to see, the actors there were information and really set the stage for the historic feel without being cheesey.

  • It's interesting that a couple of major parks in Seattle & Tacoma used to be military bases.
