Food & snacks, vendor booths, clock & watch exhibit and a museum gift shop to pick up souvenirs of the museum as well as custom shirts for the show.

The newly remodeled grist mill will be grinding fresh flour and corn meal for purchase, and the farmhouse volunteers will be creating fresh baked creations with the meal for the visitors to sample.

New this year, the Antique Gas & Steam Engine Museum is having its first ever pumpkin patch! With the hard work of a crew of dedicated volunteers they’ve been able to get the ground prepped and have been enjoying watching the seeds sprout, turn into beautiful blooms and finally become pumpkins! The museum is looking forward to offering this to the community as part of their October show.

The museum plans on having wagon rides from the front gate to the pumpkin patch as part of the show where you can pick out a pumpkin to take home.

Families will enjoy the kids zone, tractor driving lessons, tractor games, cookie decorating, scavenger hunts, rock painting hide and seek, pumpkin seeds tastings, and more!

The museum is excited to be partnering with Hollandia Dairy to provide cow milking demonstrations and cow facts!

Admission is $10.00 for adults, $9.00 for senior citizens, $7.00 for ages 6-12 and free for kids 6 and under. Military and family $5.00 Parking is free. Purchase tickets at the gate, or pre-purchase a Museum Experience pass for entry all four days in the museum gift shop.
