If you like history or antique anything, Harold Warp's Pioneer Village is totally worth the trip! I've been many places around the world and have never seen anything like this!

This place has shown and is showing its age. Grounds are well taken care of, exhibit descriptions are clearly marked. There is just so much displayed, that you can't really take it in (even the Smithsonian puts up a portion of its stuff and rotates what it has). The restaurant has '50s style menu selections (good hamburger, but wish it had lettuce & pickles besides the tomato and onion) and the hostess to go with them. The sheets in the motel are so thin that it makes you afraid you'll rip them, but overall it's a very clean place. You have to use your room key to get ice!

Wow -- you ate and slept there -- the Total Harold Warp Experience. We've only been to the museum, overwhelming enough on its own.

Motors, engines, airplanes.

Harold Warp Pioneer Village

This is an incredible collection. It contains many many lessons on American life of the past that cannot be taught from a book. The only drawback is you need more than 1 day to really appreciate it all. Driving by and thinking you are going to "take it all in" in a few hours ...just won't happen.

When we went they even had a coal fired merry-go-round and popcorn machine both working. For the detail-oriented folks, they have hand typed cards explaining each item. AND Harold Warp's own school house complete with HIS books and paperwork was charming. What a man!
