Seasonal outdoor exhibits include a front-lawn caboose, backyard One-room Schoolhouse, Vink Blacksmith Shop, Civil War Cannon, agricultural equipment, and numerous historic vehicles, including Yellowstone National Park stagecoach, sheepwagons, surrey, and more.

A great place for families, the museum offers interactives in each exhibit area (dress-ups, transportation table, coloring station) as well as a family activity book, a new history quest activity that connects stories and artifacts in the museum, docent tours for groups if requested in advance, and more.

This is a fun place to explore, even if you are not a history buff. The emphasis is on stories that illustrate museum artifacts and photos.
