Did you know how great your country really is? From crazy to life changing inventions, fascinating ways of life, exploration to allow people to move and settle creating the land we live in today...it's all a part of the American history, and a part of you.
The Miracle of America Museum and Pioneer Village has interesting exhibits on, well...just that! The Miracle of America. It's a great museum for kids to explore and get really hands on with some of the displays, and really great for their imagination. They can play teacher and student in a real school room - how does it differ from yours today? They can play in a real helicopter and run around real airplanes, looking at them close up, as well as getting hands on with a steam engine!
What did you do to get yourself into trouble now!? No wait, you're just in the pretend jail! Phew! The museum is probably the only place you can escape jail and run straight into a space ship hidden in area 51. What can you see in there?
The Miracle of America Museum and Pioneer Village also hold educational and fun Live History Days, which occur on the 3rd weekend in July. This event offers some fascinating opportunities to watch real craftsmen try their hand at tasks those from years before would have used in their everyday lives, such as spinning and blacksmithery.
