Arrived to find the village closed - very sad about that as we were looking forward to that as we were travelling from England. They did offer us a complimentary visit but were on our way back to Boston and couldn't make it for the...More

This is a "must see" if you are in the Sturbridge area, hands down. You will be about as close as you can imagine to what rural life was like in central Massachusetts in the mid-19th century. Everything from ox drawn carts to water powered...More

The Old Village is laid out and put together quite nicely, with actors dressed in period garb conducting business as people would for the day. We spoke with many of the staff and they were quite knowledgeable and happy to greet and speak with us....More

Old Sturbridge Village is an interesting place that gives you a sneek-peek back into 1800's New England life, but I think it could be a bit more interesting than simply looking in at each old house and business. Also, as a large popular attraction, I...More

What an incredible visit! The docents, fully costumed, were incredibly knowledgeable and patient in explaining life during that period. So much was going on that we couldn't take it all in. More than one day is definitely needed to visit the farm, the shops, the...More
