For a "city-boy" this was a fascinating trip to view the farm equipment and get a much better appreciation of the tools, skills and hard work the farmers of past times had to endure to grow food. Worth your time, especially for the non-farm person.

There were lots of things to see here. You would spend an hour or less here, but lots of neet stuff. This is a very nice place for grade school age chidren, especially if grandpa was along.

The farm has animals you can feed and a wide selection of buildings and machines for you to explore. The farm museum has something for every age.

My husband and I were traveling with a group of seniors and this was one of our stops with the Cherry Train. Dick was a wonderful historian, driver, sightseer. He provided us with a great history of the Farm Museum and made it very interesting....More

The farm was set up nicely with the barns, home and displays. There were goats and chickens you could feed. While it was nice to see, if I would have been driving, I probably wouldn't have stopped.

A reasonable amount of exhibits but most were not well-labeled. Liked the goat, the fancy chickens and the early settler cottage though.

A lot of old farm equipment and a couple unusual chickens and goats, cows in the back. The highlight might've been a discarded still upstairs in one of the buildings.

One of the cherry train stops was this museum. Very interesting to see how early settlers lived. There is even a picture of the family on a shelf in the main cabin. Thoroughly enjoyed walking through the buildings and seeing the history.

When we were there in July, the cabin where they lived was open. It is very small. If that's what you mean by 'the house", then the answer is yes.
