They paint a true picture of what was happening in the area during those times. They have a wealth of knowledge and can answer any question posed. 1 hour should be long enough to plan for a visit.

It was a great tour by two wonderful and very knowledgeable museum staff. They were informative and even let me try different tools. The staff taught me how to make screws and bolts with the tap and die machine.

We attended opening day for the 2013 season and found the enthusiasm, dedication, and knowledge-base of the staff simply contagious.
