If you want to see how Iowans ancestors used to lived this is the place to go. *It is an outdoor museum that recreates history and lifestyles in four time periods – the 1700 Ioway Indians, the 1850 pioneers, the townspeople of 1875 and 1900 farmers. Historical interpreters dressed in period clothing complete the daily routines of each time period – caring for animals, cooking, gardening, and much more (*copy from their website). If you want a deeper experience you can make a reservation for dinner. They will prepare dinner as they used to do in 1900, so no microwaves or stuff like that. The sad thing is that is a bit expensive ($50 per person). But you can try one of the most famous restaurants in Iowa "The machine Shed". They prepared authentic Iowan food. It is really good and is always full of people. It is fun for the entire family!
