Not a bad way to spend a couple of idle fall hours on a golf cart. The European section was interesting. Could have developed the theme of the Ulster Scots. Some of the living history guides had some knowledge and ability to share it. Others didn't. Gift shop had pleasant staff but lacked an imaginative inventory-- e.g, no takeaway reading options on Ulster Scots; no crafts made on premises, etc. I had limited options to spend money as a sign of support.

American buildings were OK. If you live in the Middle Atlantic and/or have been to Sturbridge Village, Landis Valley or a number of other, better-done living history museums, you might have higher expectations and be disappointed,

The golf cart made in tolerable

We two boys (9 & 6) and we're always looking for ways to expand their worldview. This museum does that in spades.

It has farms from all over the world in the 1700's and several more modern American farms. To get a snapshot of that variety was fantastic! The staff were beyond engaging (shout out to the pioneer American farm!) and in one notable exchange gently corrected a misimpression that a visitor had with kindness and grace (West Africa). The young lady knitting in England even had our boys eagerly volunteering to sweep up a bit. :-)

Bonus is that you can rent a golf cart which is an adventure in and of itself.

Overall, the theory/concept of this museum is just brilliant and we'll certainly be back!

This was a great self guided tour. Pathways are walkable or you can use a golf cart. Picnic tables are available. All areas were clean. At each farm, you felt like you were walking into another era. You really got the feeling of authenticity.

We found this outdoor museum to be interesting, for both adults and children. Facility is staffed with full time paid actors taking their place in history and very knowledgeable of not only their role but history of other areas of the museum. It was a bit of a stormy day when we went so we rented a golf cart to get around, which I would recommend even it weather is nice, especially if you have young children or elderly individuals traveling with you. Give yourself time to speak with the staff, ask questions, and visit the gardens and other buildings around the various sections of the property. In a few sections we stumbled across chickens, pigs, wild turkeys, sheep, etc

Fascinating concept…a must visit. The buildings are from all over the world, but all tied to the people of Virginia.

Great fun and learning experience! We enjoyed talking to the people who work there, particularly in the exhibits. A lot to see! Recommend getting a golf cart because it’s a big place.

Two of us visited as a couple. This is very much like a living museum where you get to view several of the cultural origins found cohabiting this area during the early-mid 1800’s. The emphasis is on the native Americans indigenous to Virginia, the African Americans enslaved and traded to enable white European farm settlements, and three of the primary white European farm settlers to inhabit the valley, the Irish, the Germans, and the British. There is scant mention of what drove immigration to this fertile area, other than an opportunity for land ownership and farm-driven commercial enterprise open to basically the working middle class. There is mention of the “contribution” made by non-Europeans, sidestepping how and why they were here “contributing”…

As an exposition of the housing, implements, lifestyle of these farms, fairly authentic in design and intent, it’s a fairly superficial glimpse into history, and I’d say while “nice”, it’s not vey deep, even for the many, many schoolchildren that visit that hardly grasp the complexities of life on the farm “back then”. Keep in mind the era - 1820-1850 - and the place - Virginia, specifically the Shenandoah Valley - and the constituencies that largely migrated from the NorthEast, principally Pennsylvania, and many already generations removed from Europe, creating a regional “melting pot” at the advent of the Civil War… a lost opportunity to deepen and broaden the context.

Is it worth a visit? Yes. Ask questions. Use your visit as a starting point to know and learn more. Is it comprehensive? No. Inclusive? Not IMHO. In fact, I’m curious how grade school or middle school teachers work this into their curriculum. Can it be useful as a learning experience? Yes, but I think it is best suited for families, perhaps multi-generational.

We drove onto the grounds but didn't stay long because it was getting ready to rain and it is NOT a good place to be on a rainy day. It was also very hard to find.

This was a great activity to do during the pandemic, as it’s mostly outdoors. Because it’s mostly outdoors, however, I’d recommend not doing it during the dog days of summers. You can rent golf carts to get around, which was a big help to us in July. With that staid, this is a solid look at the various cultures of people who settled what was then the frontier in Virginia. The staff were all gracious and helpful and willing to answer any and all questions.
