Structures moved here by the Museum or reproduced are buildings from countries mentioned above.
Outdoor exhibits are in two separate areas as Old World and America. Old World is about rural life and the culture of 4 homelands and the American exhibits is about the life the colonist and descendants created for themselves. One gets a good understanding of how life is shaped here in the U.S. with our pioneers of the past. We did a lot of walking and didn't see everything, next time I will wear better shoes and start earlier, but I look forward to going back.
The pictures of this visit is from April 2011, I want to go again soon to see the gardens being planted .
