Nestled on an 88-acre wooded site along the Minnesota River is this living history museum. Costumed guides representing 19th Century pioneers provide an interesting glimpse of immigrant life in rural Minnesota. Settlers demonstrate crafts and chat with visitors about daily life in the 19th Century. This unique collection of 40 buildings represents the homesteads of the many settlers that forged a life in the Minnesota River Valley between 1840 and 1890. Visitors may tour a fur trading post, two farmsteads, a country schoolhouse, shops and homes, all depicting a typical settlement. Guests may walk through the village on foot or opt for the horse-drawn trolley. Period music and entertainment is presented by the faux-pioneers. The site is decorated for the holidays and special events take place throughout the season. Call for information regarding group rates and special event information. Murphy's Landing is west of Valleyfair , about 40 minutes southwest of downtown Minneapolis.
