The staff were very knowledgeable and engaging when performing demonstrations or managing activities. Our kids had a fabulous time exploring and doing the activities!! (Ages 9 and 11). They even sat still to listen to demonstrations! There was a great mix of open exploration time and events. It was a nice, non-stress vacation day. Only comment I would make is that the drinks (water and soda) were way overpriced at the tavern-$5 each! Make sure you bring plenty of water, especially on hot days, to avoid that cost.

We went during a heat wave so it was not always pleasant to go into the shops in the village. It was very interesting and the staff are very knowledgeable. .
