Tour Living History Museum

While visiting the exhibit buildings now at Museum Village, you can shop in a 130-year-old general store, see a real Mastodon skeleton, make a candle, step inside a 200-year-old log cabin, sit in a one-room schoolhouse, and watch a broom being made. All that and be home in time for dinner!
