Opening Day @ Living History Farms
Jun 1 @ 9:00 am
Living History Farms is ready to welcome visitors beginning Monday, June 1.
We invite you to enjoy the fresh air and tour the farms and historic sites you love throughout the summer and fall!
As Living History Farms prepares to open for the 2020 season, additional procedures and guidelines are being implemented:
  • Admission is limited to 70 visitors per hour.
  • Timed-ticketing will be used to limit crowds and socially distance visitors. Tickets can be purchased in-person beginning June 1.
  • The purchase of online tickets will be available beginning in mid-June. Once available, online purchase is recommended to guarantee your preferred tour time and reduce the physical transaction of ticket sales.
  • Members receive free admission but are required to reserve a timed ticket.
  • Visitors will be assigned a touring route to ensure one-way traffic flow and limit the number of visitors to each site at one time.
  • Staff members and volunteers will be wearing masks. Masks are encouraged for all visitors and will be available for purchase.
  • New touring hours: Monday – Saturday from 9:00am-4:00pm. We will not be open on Sundays this season.
We thank you for complying with these new procedures as we work to provide a safe environment for our visitors, staff, volunteers, and campers. Questions may be directed to pr@lhf.org or 515-278-5286.
