Make a stop at the pharmacy, the print shop, and the schoolhouse. Warm up as you ride the Empire State Carousel inside its heated enclosure. Wagon rides around the historic village run from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. (weather permitting). At the Children’s Barnyard, admire our Heritage breeds of chickens and sheep. Todd’s General Store will be open with hand-crafted items that will transport you back in time. Both museum stores are open from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
