Costumed guides give demonstrations (although the museum really needs more of them than the four who were there when we visited). We were able to see a weaving demonstration and horses being hitched to a wagon and taken for a ride. When we got to the 1960s one-room school house, the kids enjoyed playing school, tending the wood stove and using the real McGuffey's Reader. Next, we went to the 1890s area, where we toured the home, the barns, and the workshop. The grandkids particularly enjoyed watching the antics of the pigs wallowing in their mud hole and getting to see two cows up close and personal. Myself, I enjoyed musing about what it would be like to have to cook meals on the home's old-fashioned wood-fired stove!
