  • My kids and I went during the “Hands-On” event and really enjoyed ourselves. It wasn’t crowded at all given it was a hot Saturday afternoon. My kids (7 & 4) learned some history and the way of life 200 years ago. They did some arts and crafts as well. But at the end of the day, they were grateful for living in this century :).
  • I'm not a beer drinker, but I found myself loving the selection! The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. Make time for this stop in your travels.
