Check out the NW District Beekeepers Display in building 500 to get the answers. There, you can see a live hive and talk to live beekeepers.
Do the sounds at a dentist office scare you? Now's your chance to hear and look at those instruments in a whole new light. Just wander over to the Quil Ceda Carvers and see all of the wonderful wood carvings they do. Stay awhile and watch them create their carvings. The carvers are located in building 500.
Could you live without an indoor bathroom? electricity? a plush mattress? See how people lived in the "old days" (we're not talking the 50s).
