This museum has some nice artifacts on display from the period. They have guides available if you want them, and there is no admission charge. It’s worth spending 20 minutes here.

The flax spinning weaving display with in period actors is stunningly good, not to be missed. This house is a quick inexpensive (donations only) way to view how folks lived in the day.
