  • I personally thought that this place was fascinating, though it is certainly a small business that is struggling to continue running. While I was visiting, my family were the only people there. It genuinely is an entire prairie village with artifacts in the original buildings. Unlike other outdoor museums like this, the artifacts aren’t blocked off by a rope or wall. You can see everything up close as if you were actually in there yourself, and it is set up pretty nicely. The only critiques that I have are the fact that some of the buildings are in disrepair and look like they will fall over completely (these are blocked off from the public) and that there is nothing that actually explains the contents of the buildings besides the sign on the front of each building.
  • Imagine you have been transported back to any old west village main street. Got it? Perfect, in that case you have a good picture of this museum, but wait ...there is a Random REAL Queen Victoria dress thrown in. I'll let you be the judge of that one. Definitely great for little kids and so much fun!
