Step back in time and see what life was like in Amherst in the 19th century. This 35-acre historical park features twelve restored buildings, open for tours from April to mid-October. A large modern exhibit building has year-round displays on local history, along with antique radios, decorative arts and changing exhibits. The children's discovery room has hands-on exhibits, including a replica Erie Canal packet boat. The museum offers educational programs for youth, along with craft guilds, such as lace-making and Victorian dancing for adults. Annual festivals and events include a harvest festival, Scottish festival and a Victorian Christmas. -Christine Smyczynski
