Museum Village is a unique and inviting open-air historical museum which offers visitors the opportunity to explore vignettes of 19th century American life. Using a large collection of eclectic artifacts, the museum provides hands-on educational experiences and exhibits that illustrate the transition from a rural to an industrial culture and economy in America. We often have costumed interpreters here in our buildings to give a live presentation of the history here. We offer school class trips and summer tours. Visit the School House, Print shop, Broom Shop, Candle Shop, Blacksmith, Log Cabin, Weave Shop, Farm Tools, Firehouse, Livery, Drug Store, and Natural History Buildings, which has one of three complete mastodon skeletons in the world! Come see our farm animals, enjoy a walk around the Green and bring a picnic lunch or enjoy what we have to offer in our Snack Bar.

KAC’s Kids Camp is a great alternative to full-day summer-long programs. The small camp groups enable students to receive individual attention in a warm, family-like atmosphere. All of KAC’s Art camps are one-week sessions with half-day, full-day and extended-day options.

Campers should dress for a mess and bring a snack each day as we have a small “recess” outside, with lawn games and crafts. Full-day campers should also bring a lunch to be escorted to lunch and their next afternoon camp. See Camp FAQs for more info.

Please note: Subjects listed are options – choose one subject for each half-day weekly session. Materials are included for all camps, except where noted in the camp descriptions.

 

Weekly Camp Session Rates:

Half-Day $360; Full-Day $720

(week of July 4: Half-Day $213 / Full-Day $432)

 

Extended Day Option:
