300 YEARS OF HISTORY

 
 
 
 
 
 

Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa, tells the amazing story of how Iowans transformed the fertile prairies of the Midwest into the most productive farmland in the world. While at the 500-acre open-air museum, visitors travel at their own pace through historical time periods spanning 300 years. On-site interpreters provide a unique learning environment of seasonal activities and demonstrations.

Living History Farms is such a unique opportunity to experience life outside of our time period. Thank you for providing such wonderful experiences!
