Haven't been back here since fifth grade!! The wife and I now being middle age had a great time. We loved walking around and learning about our New English history in a "living" town enviroment. All the employees were exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable on the character they portrayed
This was so much fun! Lots to see, do and learn. By the end of the day our legs and feet were sore in a good way from doing so much. I enjoyed going here with my daughter because it was a good learning experience about a time of our country as well as fun.
