A Village of Progress

Have you ever wondered how newspapers were printed in the 19th century or how a steam-engine could power a boat?  Then step through time into The Genius Museum at Nature’s Art Village and enter a village of progress! Take a historic walk and discover a timeless town displaying the rapid transformation of American technology over two centuries, along with the Geniuses who created it all! The Genius Museum is a great place for families to share memories, older adults to feel nostalgic and the young to learn how everyday life has developed with technology’s advances.
