I went to Gibb's for the Halloween night tour, in which scary ghost stories were shared by candlelight. It was a lot of fun! The audience really got a feel for what life was like in the 'olden days' living on a farm.
We went to the Gibbs Museum on Dakota Day. There were people in little house in the prairie style costumes and in Native American costumes. The kids loved the farm animals, craft projects and the tiny house made of sod. My son was in love with the Indian section of the museum which had teepees and a house made of bark. Inside the bark house and tipi there where Indian tools and furs. We really enjoyed our day!
I would recommend the Gibbs Museum to anyone with kids! My kids (ages 6, 7,10,12) all enjoyed different parts of the museum. It was a relaxing afternoon out.
