Kids may not seem to care how things were in the past, but exposure to places like this do make an impression! Plan on 30 minutes but don't me surprised if you stay a couple hours. What you see does educate and provide vital context...More

We went there for a Cub Scout event and had a blast! So much to see and do. Lots of hands-on activities. Plenty of shade to help in the summer heat.
