A world-class museum in every way...and our tour guide, Shirley, brought the past to life with her knowledge and enthusiasm.

This is a relatively unique sort of museum. It's interesting for the whole family--especially if you bring members of a senior generation to share their experiences with the children. It's fun for kids to see transportation from the "olden days", but adults enjoy it too....More

Its a museum full of carriages. If that's your thing then go for it. Personally I think The Simpson's described it best as one of the most boring family vacation spots.
