Don't let the name throw you: This walk-through-the-buildings museum is an interesting look at rural village life around 1845. The 25 historic buildings were moved to this site, a working farm since 1790, to re-create a 19th-century village. Workers staff some of the buildings dressed in period costumes and fully acting the part: The blacksmith is banging out horseshoes, the printer is creating a poster, and the pharmacist is passing out information on the herbal remedies of the time. They bring the museum to life and make it worth spending an hour or so here.
