Each year we offer guests a look at artifacts that are not ordinarily on display in our heritage buildings. If you think you've seen all there is to see at the museum village, come back and check out our exhibits in the modest Temporary Gallery space off of the Gift Shop!

While in quarantine, we reformatted old exhibits to online formats for everyone to enjoy. Check out our brand new Virtual Exhibits:
