I sent an email to ask if they would stay open late as I was driving from Chicago and they said yes which was very good of them. Well worth a visit if you're interested in that type of stuff.

Huge collection of farm toys and dioramas. My 9 and 12 year old loved looking at all the tractors! My son is a huge tractor lover and at one point said it was the best day ever! It was fun to see his excitement!

Being a public facility, I would think it's handicap accessible. I tried getting discounts for our group with little success. It was still worth the admission!
