Nice area to walk outside. Small but cute. I would recommend as a nice family outing. I want to see the planetarium next.

This place was awesome. My kids 4,6 both had a blast. We did gem mining then watched planetarium movie. Walked the trails outside and had picnic lunch then back into see exhibits. The animals were neat and space travel was fun. The pirate ship was cool too. I had to drag them away.

This has always been to most helpful and visual history museum. Their planetarium is a must see and you'll be stimulated from beginning to end. You may have to plan another visit to see it all!

This place does not deserve to be called a museum and the saddest part is that is one of the main attractions of the town...

The museum was really great! The indoor exhibits and planetarium were such fun and the walking trails were the perfect compliment for people who also enjoy being outdoors. I will definitely be coming back!

My daughter recently had her bridal pictures taken outside on the walking trail, in the 1800's farm village. It is breathtaking!

We took the grandbabies here and they had a great time oohing and awing everything and the outside trail tired them out so we had a great nap time.
