I once took a class of fifth graders there, and they loved it. Another time we visited in a small group and were rewarded by seeing a sleeping bullsnake in a patch of sunlight on the lowest level. Apparently there is enough grain from times past to attract mice, which in turn made it possible for the bullsnake to have a meal and a nap. For anyone who likes old equipment and contraptions, there are enough to keep a real implement buff busy for hours. This place is well worth the drive, and there are attractions beyond it to incorporate into a full day of fun.
