We visited as a family, it was interesting, there was something for everyone to enjoy. The grounds are lovely, well maintained. The exhibits are unique and interesting whether you are a history buff or just looking to spend a days walking back in time.

A fantastic day trip, even in the rain. Dan, our tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and answered every question asked. My 4 year old son got a little bored, my 7 and 9 year old daughters loved it!

The special programs are very helpful in learning about the area. The traffic signage is a bit confusing particularly when exiting the area and trying to get back south. Easy to get on the email list for upcoming activities.

I was last at this site in 2003, but The "RoyVB" assessment above sounds accurate from my recollection. Why not call the attraction and ask?
