The buildings and interpreters are good. The food and drinks are completely overpriced. I was glad we brought our own waters, because they charge $3 per bottle of water. I recommend you bring a picnic lunch, and do not forget your own water bottles!

Visited in the fall. It was beautiful with the trees in fall colour. It was less busy since it was off season which was nice. The staff dress in costumes and help create a feeling of going back in time. Well worth a visit!
