Excellent 10-minute audio tour gives an overview of the museum displays; docents are also available for personalized tours and questions.

On site is the Imobersteg Farmstead Cheese Factory:  step back into the late 1800's into an authentic cheese factory relocated from an area farm where it sat untouched since 1917.  All the original equipment can be viewed in this factory that was once used for producing Brick, Swiss, and Limburger cheese using the milk from the 40 cows at the Imobersteg Farm.
