The farm was set up nicely with the barns, home and displays. There were goats and chickens you could feed. While it was nice to see, if I would have been driving, I probably wouldn't have stopped.

A reasonable amount of exhibits but most were not well-labeled. Liked the goat, the fancy chickens and the early settler cottage though.

A lot of old farm equipment and a couple unusual chickens and goats, cows in the back. The highlight might've been a discarded still upstairs in one of the buildings.

One of the cherry train stops was this museum. Very interesting to see how early settlers lived. There is even a picture of the family on a shelf in the main cabin. Thoroughly enjoyed walking through the buildings and seeing the history.

There was no tour person here so you're just in and out of farm buildings with some history posted. Hear there are days with demonstrations. Learned more about it after being there. It was More interesting after reading the info.

The museum does not have guides, but there are many signs with information posted in each of the display areas. The farm includes many historic buildings and a few animals. A good place to explore if you have a couple hours.

A visit here takes you back in time. Lots of different buildings with lots of antiques from how people lived and farmed long ago. They also had goats and chickens. It's a self guided tour that only asks for donations. If you're on the island...More

Really gives a person a good look at what life on a farm used to be. It is set up perfectly and easy access to all buildings. A must see!

Both the kids and the adults enjoyed this attraction. Guys will love all the farming history. Kids loved using the waterpump and watering the garden, plus seeing the animals.

This place is kind of cool but unless you are a history buff or a farmer who also likes history of farming, you don't need to stay more than 20-30 minutes. It is free but they have a suggested donation of $1 per person.
