Visitor Center & KidStory

The Visitor Center is the gateway into the Village. Visitors can purchase daily admission, memberships, special event tickets, and make donations with our friendly customer service staff. When you arrive, you will receive a Daily Map Guide with a map of the Village and a listing of the day's activities.

Other special spaces located within the Visitor Center include:

The Stephen M. Brewer Theater

A 250-seat space used for speakers, musical performances, magic shows, and more.

A hands-on interactive space for young children to try on costumes, and engage in make-believe play at a farm, country store, and hearth kitchen.

The Clock Gallery

The J. Cheney Wells Clock Gallery is accessible from the Visitor Center and houses dozens of antique tall case (or "grandfather") clocks.
