On Site Features:
What kind of visit you can have:  Visit museum, then the grounds of the village.  Tours are given during the summer, and the grounds are open although the 24 buildings are locked the rest of the year.  It is far enough from traffic and the buildings are spread out enough to give a good feel of a prairie village.
