This summer, bring your kids, grandkids and friends to visit the past and experience life at the turn of the last century on our Family & Friends Fun Day, offered one Friday in June and one in July. Stroll through the museum and see horse-drawn buggies and farm machinery from the good ol’ days. With your tour guide, visit selected buildings in the village and meet the villagers, who help the children with hands-on activities. Enjoy playing vintage games, watch the blacksmith at work in his forge or the woodworker in his shop, withdraw money at the bank to spend shopping at the General Store, and more. Bring your own lunch and have a picnic on our village grounds. Tours start every half hour between 10am and noon and each tour lasts 90 minutes. Cost is $5 per person, age 3 and up.  A ticket is needed to be in the village.

Each 90-minute guided tour starts every half hour between 10am and noon.

This is the only Village tour open to the public that does not need to be scheduled in advance. Tickets can be purchased at the entrance gate on the day of the tour. A ticket is needed to be in the Village.
