All visitors are required to report here first and get a visitor's pass. This building houses the exhibition titled "The Migration Story" which we advise all visitors to see first. Everyone is given a brochure here that serves as their tour guide during the visit. Audio tapes are available here for visits to the 1894 School and 1890 Farm.
Self Guided Tours
The brochure given to visitors at the visitor's center will serve as a tour guide. It will enable visitors to tour the museum on their own. They are free to go anywhere they please after the Visitor's Center. Because our site extends for almost a mile, we ask that those visiting plan to take a few hours for a leisurely stroll into history.
