3 Ways To Visit

Since visits are self-guided, guests can move from site to site at their own pace. Most groups spend between three and six hours to visit all the sites, but groups with just a couple of hours to spend can be accommodated.

General Visit - lasts 3-5 hours

Includes all three farms, town of Walnut Hill and the Wallace Exhibit Center.

1900 Farm Visit - lasts 2-4 hours

Ideal for a group with time or mobility limitations. This visit includes the town of Walnut Hill, 1900 Farm and Wallace Exhibit Center, and omits the 1700 Ioway Farm and 1850 Pioneer Farm, and the majority of the walking.

Town Only Visit - lasts 1-2 hours

Visitors are also welcome to visit the town only.
