An informative museum with lots of exhibits and old buildings to wander around. The musical ride is pretty good and you are permitted to visit the horses in the stables. Worth a visit.

We stopped in to the museum while we were in the area. Surprised at the great displays and historical significance. Then the musical ride went beyond our expectations! Having ridden with a drill team, we appreciated the horsemanship and precision training of these young people...More
