Owner description: Museum Village is a living history museum preserving a vast collection of eclectic, 19th century artifacts for educational purposes. Using these artifacts and reproductions, we provide hands-on experiences and exhibits illustrating the transition from a rural to an industrial culture and economy in America, provoking thought and discussion about history. Exhibits include blacksmith shop, weaving, farm life, candle shop, firehouse, school house, log cabin, energy and the environment and a complete mastodon skeleton (only 1 of 3 in the entire world!). Special events include a Gem & Mineral Show, Summer Tours, Ghost Tours, a Civil War re-enactment (Labor Day Weekend), No Scare Halloween, Thanksgiving Tasting & Christmas In The Village. Check out our website for many more events!

This is a unique place as the "museum" is actually a small village that preserved the shops and other services that existed in the 19th century. There are even shop keepers dressed in time period clothing. There are special events and plays as well as an occasional re-enactment. Museum Village is good for just about any age group.

Wonderful place to enjoy the day outside and inside with living history. The best is the Labor Day
weekend ..... Civil War .... with North and South soldiers, horses, and camp out.

I haven't been there in a while, however, when my girls were little, we would go to a variety of events there. In the summer there is Civil War re-enactment weekend, excellent. In the fall they have a 'haunted' Halloween day/night, non-scary during the day, a little scary at night. During the year though, you can just go in and walk around the different buildings and learn a new and different things about the past, i.e. candle making, there is a print shop and they even have a Mastodon that was dug up in the area! There is a snack area with typical fare, and they also have a General Store.

I went with my son who is in 4th grade and he liked a lot of the exhibits. Almost every one had a guide to talk about the contents of each building. They had a wool spinning, candle making, a print shop, a real Mastodon skeleton, blacksmith, General Store, broom maker and more. For those that said you could see everything in 1 1/2 hours, they really weren't trying. Yes, you could walk through all of the exhibits quickly in 1 1/2 hours, but if you do some of the activities, it will take longer.

The reason I say pick a good day is because you have to walk outside between the buildings so keep that in mind.
