Group pricing is available for groups of 12 or more. To book your visit, fill out the reservation form at least two weeks in advance.
Guests can move from site to site at their own pace. Tours are self-guided, but visitors will encounter historic interpreters throughout the museum at each of our working farms and in our historic town. These museum guides will offer information about the respective time period they represent and answer questions for visitors. Groups are free to split up to pursue different areas of the museum, or remain together as they explore our historic sites. 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. Visitors receive a short orientation and a map at the Visitor Center. Tractor carts are available for transportation from the 1875 town of Walnut Hill to the beginning of the “300 Year Walk” through historical farm sites. The walking tour of these farms is just less than one mile along a beautiful wooded path.
Our General Visit includes all three farms, the town of Walnut Hill, and the Wallace Exhibit Center.
The 1900 Farm Visit is 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, along with the majority of the walking.
Our Town Visit includes all town sites including the Flynn Mansion and Victorian Tangen Home.
