I have visited this place many times, especially taking field trips with my students from Montgomery County. It is very hands-on and there are mny dosons to explain the history to our groups. They share interesting stories which keep the attention of little ones.

Lovely historic home & farm turned into a Children's Museum. Our granddaughters love going and exploring. About every year, the museum changes up a few things to keep it interesting. Just walking (or running) around the grounds is nice also.
