Things to See & Do

Castle Farms offers something for every member of your family or group.

Your Self-Guided Tour starts with a video presenting the history and restoration process that transformed a 1918 farm into the world-class historic property it is today. Wander the fully restored stone courtyards and buildings at your leisure and view the extensive collections. Visit the 1918 Museum, which showcases posters, musical scores, uniforms, and other memorabilia from the Great War era. See if you recognize any of the famous bands who once performed at the Castle.

You won’t want to miss the largest working outdoor Model Railroad in Michigan; (open May-Oct, weather permitting) over 70 G-scale trains operate on more than 2,500 feet of track. Play tag in our hedge maze, feed the native Rainbow Trout in the Reflection Pond, have a picnic lunch at Birch Lake (food available for purchase on-site) or explore the wood-chip paths of the Enchanted Forest.

At Castle Farms our hours of operation occasionally change due to events. Please check our HOURS page prior to your visit to make sure you have plenty of time to explore the Castle!
