A re-creation of an early 1800s New England town made from the actual artifacts of the period: buildings, tools, machines and methods of work: a living museum of New England history.

 

 

Old Sturbridge Village, in Sturbridge MA (map), is one of America's oldest outdoor museums of history and culture.

Like Plimoth Plantation and Mystic Seaport, Old Sturbridge Village is peopled with authentically-dressed interpreters, folks who perform the tasks of the village's daily life and explain to visitors how things were done in the America of 1790 to 1840.

Located at the intersection of Interstate highways 84 and 90, north of Hartford CT, east of Springfield MA, west of Boston and Worcester MA, Sturbridge is a convenient place to stop for a meal, a night's rest, and some sightseeing, so a visit to Old Sturbridge Village should fit easily into your itinerary.

Plan at least a few hours, or perhaps a full day, to get into village life. The admission fee entitles you to a map/guide to exhibits in the Village, and readmission the following day at no extra charge.

Within the Village are several varied places to eat: a bake shop, the Pantry, a cafeteria, and the Tavern, which serves full meals, cocktails and, from late May to late October, a luncheon buffet.

The Old Sturbridge Village website has details on opening hours, admission fees, special exhibits and other features.
