The village is a display of early settler's life, a great place to visit for family with kids. Volunteers provide historical details and explanations in costumes and humor. During festivals, you'll also enjoy local live music and dance, with some pretty impressive dancers.

This little village was charming on the outside, but I wasn't thrilled by the interiors which were filled with a Mish mash of miscellaneous items and displays. I like history, but, for me the pieces used need to feel harmonious with the culture it's displayed...More
