Kind of dated. A bit hokey, almost silly. We brought a visiting family of relatives. Nobody raved. Lacks people and alive feeling. You walk about on your own. Automated displays.

Awesome time at the museum. They created a very authentic old town. Stage coaches from back in the day, even one you could get into for photo's. They had an old phone from the party line days with a women gossiping which was so funny....More
