Excellent museum with a wonderful pioneer village with host/hostesses. Great theatre and films. Good variety of exhibits, currently one has Lego castles. Friendly staff. Low admission fees. Can easily spend 3-4 hours indoors and outdoors.

It was well worth going to this museum. Interesting local history, and they had a Lego exhibit on when we went. The only thing I didn't realize was that the attached pioneer village is not open until later in June.

Just recently my family and I attended the Pratie Oaten Irish Festival. There is always an event happening with music and fantastic entertainment. A perfect spot for all ages. Worth a trip to see what they have going on.
