Tea Party Tours

Have you ever thought about having a tea party with friends inside a heritage building? We offer a fun and immersive Tea Party Tour at the Museum during our Summer months!

Enjoy an intimate guided tour of the Museum with one of our living history interpreters, a private tea party area inside the heritage building of your choice, your choice of coffee/tea/iced tea/hot cocoa for the table, a selection of dainties, and a Victorian etiquette lesson! Tea Party Tours must be booked in advance, and are $4.00/person above regular Museum admission to cover food costs. Group sizes vary depending on heritage building space. 

Community Mural Project 

This Summer, we launched our Community Mural Wall inside the Allis Chalmers Building to celebrate the life of the late Gilbert Vust. In the Winter, we gave out 600 6″x6″ MDF tiles to our local community to paint agricultural scenes to be made into a collective mosaic. The initial deadline to return the tiles was June 30, 2020. Due to Covid-19 and the closure of schools, we have extended the deadline to September 30, 2020, so that students can still participate!
