    Living History Farms

    Never been to it and I was curious what others thought of it.

    Worth a trip? Yay or nay?

    Re: Living History Farms

    If your in 5th grade and get to ride the bus and get out of school. Yes it's worth it. Grown adult? not so much. However the Machine Shed resturant right out in front is great though.


    Nobody but HB knows for sure. You pretty much know nothing....like Knownothing would like to say.

    Overrated, so keep your expectations in check. But one visit to learn a little about Iowa history wouldn't hurt you. Worth it.

    Nothing in particular. Was just curious if the Farms would be worth a visit some weekend.

    True. I haven't been there since the field trips. Friends have taken their kids though.

    You might want to watch out for water moccasins if you plan on bringing your wife or girlfriend. Also you might not want to go to smelly living history farms because it might be too hot/humid. Just a tip from an expert.
