This is a good informational history lesson for children. There are a few different activities to do. Kids get to "churn" butter by shaking a jar and have the opportunity to taste the results. There is a practice cow to milk, period accurate housing, period accurate clothing, and a little school house.

It was a very enjoyable time with my four grandsons aged 5-9. It was quite crowded. The attractions were cute. Reindeer were great. There were lots of Picture taking scenes such as snowmen to put your face in, Santa's sleigh to sit in, presents to stand in front of, etc. Frosty the Snowman and the Gingerbread man were walking around...

We took my fiance's 19 month old granddaughter to Santa's Village Saturday night. They opened at 5 and we thought if we arrived at 5, we woud avoid some of the long lines...wrong! It From the time we arrived to get in the ticket line, then moved straighted into the line to see Santa, it took 1.5 hours. Fortunately, a... More

We have been before, but this year our kids are 5=4 and 6. Our 4 year old still loved it and thought everything was great. Our 6 year old said it was "babyish." We got there right when they opened and stood in line to see Santa for about half an hour. They had a cartoon playing for the kids... More

I have only been to the Constitution Village during the Christmas season when they have the Santa's Village. I loved it as much as my children! They have several activities for the kids and the decorations are perfect. The staff is friendly and everything is well maintained. I do recommend getting there early or be prepared for lines.

The buildings are all very close together and easy to access only problem was no one could tell us what day the individual houses were open so we only saw them from street view. The Hardware store was a treasure trove of past goodies!

The site is a re-creation of the buildings that stood in this area of town, so it it disappointing from a historic perspective that none of the buildings are original. The period-costumed guides do an excellent job of conveying the history of the constitutional convention. However, the tour seems more geared towards kids and family and less for history enthusiasts... More

4 of us "older" adults did the Twickenham Breakfast Trolley while I had guests visiting. Overall, it was a good experience but wedging into the small seating was near excruciating! The trolley is apparently made for folks of that time period and not for the 5'8"+ that each of us are. They also had the oft mentioned issues of it... More

The history is wonderful. The buildings are well kept. Costumed employees offer guided tours or will answer your questions if you prefer to wander about on your own. Nicely landscaped.
