This museum has several preserved buildings as a "village". The docent did an excellent job intreperting the site, and the museum had a great exhibit about native americans.

A superb small museum with costumed docents leading you through historic period buildings. The buildings have been thoughtfully restored and the docents are interesting and informative. The are also interesting contemporary art and historic displays in the modern museum building.
