Welcome! Living History Farms offers three “at your own pace” experiences to fit your unique schedule.
This complete Town and Farm experience includes the 1875 Town of Walnut Hill, the Henry A. Wallace Exhibit Center, and all three farm sites, and can take anywhere between 3-4 hours to complete.
The 1900 Farm Visit is 2 to 3 hours and eliminates the walk from the 1700 Indian Farm to the 1850 Pioneer Farm. The tractor cart driver will drop you off at the 1900 Farm and pick you up at the Wallace Exhibit Center.
The Town Only Visit takes 2 hours or less and includes the entire 1875 Town of Walnut Hill.
Visitors are welcome to bring in their own food and beverage to enjoy at Living History Farms. Visitors are also welcome to leave and come back the same day. For your convenience, we offer on-site food options in our Summer Kitchen Snack Shop. The Summer Kitchen is located at the north end of the Flynn Mansion, and offers hot and cold food options, including cold meat sandwiches, hot dogs, nachos, and pizza. The Summer Kitchen is open daily, except Sundays, from 11:30 am to 2:30 pm.
Find seating at the picnic shelter, behind the Summer Kitchen, and outside the Visitor Center.
Did you know you can apply the cost of admission to a membership purchase and get a year’s worth of free admission to the Farms? This offer ends once you leave, so visit the MarketPlace Museum Store or Admissions to take advantage of this great offer!
