This looks like a fun place to spend a couple hours. Unfortunately it is only open seasonally so be careful when you go. We tried to visit on March 14, but it was all shut down.

There are recorded messages at most of the buildings that will tell you the history of what you see. There's a lot there, but take your time and check out all the treasures they have.
