Each year, Living History Farms invites guests to dinner at one of the museum’s many historic homes. Much more than a meal, you’ll step back in time to get a glimpse of life in the past and a taste of history at a Historic Dinner program!

Through April 2021
The 1900 Farm staff welcomes guests with a horse-drawn wagon ride to the farm house, where they cozy up to the wood-burning stove and enjoy a hearty meal.
Experience the high style a la Russe dining of the late 19th century in the elegant Flynn Mansion! Serving staff will present multiple courses of food, one by one, and offer tips for navigating the many forks and spoons laid out at each place setting.
Ladies and gentlemen of all ages are welcome to the Flynn Mansion for a Victorian tea service. Enjoy tea sandwiches, scones, and cakes and sweets, along with steaming cups of tea.
Through December 2020
The Dahl Historic Dinners at Tangen in the 1876 town of Walnut Hill are special occasion meals shared in the Victorian dining room, followed by fun and frivolous games in the parlor afterwards.
Living History Farms does not accept gratuities for our programs.
