Extremely rude staff; rushed through the museum in order to see a bunch of outside buildings. So-called staff members standing around and gossiping and not explaining anything about the buildings. Lectured by another staff member on where I can or cannot take pictures. In the...More

Great place to take the kids to walk around and learn about life in the pioneer times. The village is very hands-on with activities for the kids and lots of things to see and do. Parents can learn a lot as well.

This is a GREAT place to take kids to see Santa! Small intimate atmosphere. Great looking Santa. Avoid those long lines at the mall and come here. This is like a mini Greenfield Village right in the heart of Troy.
