Take a virtual hot air balloon ride over the county, or build a car in Factory Works. Groups can choose between a 90-minute visit in the morning or afternoon, a half-day visit, which includes an educational lesson by museum staff, self-directed play and lunchroom accommodations, or a full-day visit which includes a tour of the New Home Ivyland Train Station and a 45-minute ride.
