We spent an afternoon at the museum. It was very interesting to see the history of people living in the area and its economy over time through actual buildings, furniture, and various artifacts from times gone by.

Excellent museum with a wonderful pioneer village with host/hostesses. Great theatre and films. Good variety of exhibits, currently one has Lego castles. Friendly staff. Low admission fees. Can easily spend 3-4 hours indoors and outdoors.

The main museum part is very informative and, at times, quite surprising... especially the part about the history of black people in the area. But the best part of the experience is the historical village out behind the main museum building. The various pioneer houses,...More
