Good depiction of farm life in the early/mid 1800s. Clean, well staffed facility with excellent restored buildings. Not much activity, but good for history buffs.

The Farmer's Museum is still a great place to go, just not as good as it used to be. Seems that they have downsized somewhat, maybe due to economic reasons...don't know. We visited on July 4th and they had a reading of the Declaration of...More

We enjoyed this visit with our 11 and 13 year olds. It was a nice day to walk around outside and it gives the feel of a historic village.

This farm is nice and educational but our family has "been there done that" and it started raining so only gets an average score from us. I would recommend for families with younger children.

The grounds are basically smooth dirt with small gravel. Completely walkable. The museum doesn't cover a whole lot of area so there are no means of transportation provided. There are places where you can sit and rest.
