Your admission comes with entrance to several Renaissance timber-framed houses with painted furniture, costumes, local ceramics, toys, and religious and nonreligious images. Several reconstructions bring you into a high plains farmer's living room or craftsmen’s workshops, such as a forge and a carpentry shop.
