We had a great time!
Visiting Dutch Village has been a treat for us every year.
We were welcomed with hand crafted personalized name pins, it was such
a nice and thoughtful gesture. The dancing, the tradition and the
friendly people continue to bring us back every year! Gillian

We had approximately 60 parents and children visit Dutch Village. The
kids loved it but the parents enjoyed it even more. I was surprised
at how much they learned about Dutch Culture. They all loved the dancing
and little Dutch shoe name tags. Marguerite Watson, Kalamazoo
Our home-school field trip club recently attended a tour at Dutch Village. The tour guide was knowledgeable and able to engage the children at varying ages. The entry fee to the park was cost-effective.The children learned about history; music; dance; wood carving and enjoyed the fun rides afterward. Thank you for the fun and educational family tour. - West Mi. Home-School Field Trip Club
