It's wonderful to see the results of careful attention to preserving local history in this collection of well-restored and maintained historical buildings of various types that have been brought together in this museum. We visited on a pleasant summer day in the middle of the week and enjoyed wandering around the "village", looking at the outsides of the buildings, peering through the windows, and reading the informational signs. The only building that was open, however, was the "general store" / gift shop. Although we were able to freely wander the grounds at no charge, it seems that guided tours [small charge] are available only on weekends. Although we enjoyed the experience, and admire the efforts of the Geauga County Historical Society staff and volunteers, I suspect we would have enjoyed it even more had we been able to experience one of the guided tours as well. The store is open Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday; tours are twice daily on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays [hours vary by season]. There are a number of festivals and special events scheduled throughout the year; details are available on the website.
