|"Rockford's History Museum" includes an outdoor village|
I began with the village, which was equally as stunning as Klehm Arboretum was in the gorgeous snowfall we experienced during our trip. The village is open during the warmer months where visitors can take guided tours through the buildings by a cast of costumed interpreters. During the winter months we were still able to walk around the village, admire the historical buildings, and enjoy the winter scenery.

Disclosure: Our family's visit to Rockford including admission to the Midway Village Museum was provided by the Illinois Office of Tourism. As always, all of my thoughts are my own, unbiased, opinions based on my first-hand experiences.
