I have been to Old Sturbridge Village many times and always enjoy it. The cast is so very knowledgeable and eager to involve those who visit. Because it is a dynamic exhibit with working farms, every season brings new experiences. There is so much to do and so much to learn at this venue! A visit to OSV is a... More

We love OSV. Went this past weekend for MidWinter Mischief and had a blast. The cast was outstanding and the quick pace was good for holding everyone's attention. I really enjoyed this addition to their programming.

A wonderful winter day! It didn't hurt that it was unseasonably warm, but even on a cold day, there's enough in-and-out during the interactive theater experience that it would be comfortable. The reasonably priced tour included a period-inspired meal (choices included vegetarian options). We were given characters to play, some of whom were more central to the action than others,... More

Whenever we visit our relatives in Massachusetts, we always stop at Old Sturbridge on our way back home for lots of home made candy. It's the best.

Some people call this a grade 6 school trip but I really liked it. I live in Canada near Upper Canada Village and I wanted to see the differences and the similarities. I think this village portrays a more austere lifestyle but it was cool to see.

I am a member of this historical working village. Great fun and learning! Not only do the "citizens" work and craft from the 1800's but the events offered also reflect the time period.

My partner, two friends, and I attended Midwinter Mischief yesterday. Two of us had been to Old Sturbridge Village many, many times, and the other two had never been before. We were all enthralled by this new way to see the village. Not only do you get a scrumptious lunch and dessert, but the "tour" was wonderful. The story of... More

We just returned from this wonderful interactive theatrical experience at Old Sturbridge Village. What an awesome afternoon! The storyline is genius! Perfect for the colonial setting. A great value...including lunch. This is perfect for the entire family. I hope OSV produces more of these! All involved were amazing in their roles. Great entertainment with lots of fun and education! .

We've been many times over the years and it's well worth the visit. Always something going on. great hands-on experiences along with great guides and the self-tour is awesome too! October fun days or weekend nights with many special offerings.

It's a great visit especially when they have exhibitions. Itineraries are available for daily demonstrations and stories of yesterday.
