We did the tour and got to go into buildings that arent just open. We had a blast and my kids learned a lot. They have toured many historical places so some of the things they knew. The dressmaker was in so they got to see how an old sewing machine works! If it is your first time definitely do... 更多
We visited with two families that included 6 kids under the age of 7. They had so much fun! There was a lot to see and learn and a lot more hands on activities for the kids than we expected. Pack a picnic lunch and plan on spending 1/2 day visiting the homes and shops.

We have taken grandkids here for folkways of Christmas - a living history village to se how people lived and celebrated in the late 1800's. You can go at your own pace
Every time I'm in Minnesota I'm amazed how many people I encounter who don't know about this place - literally a walk through history.

We live fairly close to the Landing and try to stop at least once a summer. I love taking time to really walk through and look at the old buildings.

We took the grandkids here for the day. They had a blast. Asked many questions of the costumed workers and they were all right up to date with the era they were in. It was disappointing that several of the buildings were not open but it was very hot so maybe they did not have enough staff. Would love to... 更多
We took our grandchildren to Murphy's Landing and had a fun afternoon. The kids especially enjoyed the horse and carriage ride to the main grounds. The costumed villagers were knowledgeable about the period of history represented in the town. It was fun to see the chickens in one hard and realistic decor in the houses. The grounds were well maintained.
This historical site is fun for the whole family! There is always something to see and do at this attraction. They have seasonal activities for everyone! Highly recommended!
Awesome tour of the Landing led by a great and knowledgeable guide. The kids had lots of fun seeing how people used to live and seeing the heritage farm animals. The employees went above and beyond to save us a walk back once it started storming and hailing outside.
