Very nice Museum with outdoor settlement. We watched a firing of a cannon, learned about old time remedies for illnesses, learned about tobacco planting and harvesting. Can be done in 1/2 day!

One of my favorite museums ever! Loved exploring the outdoor encampment and chatting with the characters. I learned so much about early everyday life in the colonies. There are so many hands-on interactive exhibits inside and out. A must see!
