Having visited the location numerous times in the past (and quite happily), I cannot fathom why they portray this as "Living history museum of life in the 1700's". Mystic Seaport is somewhat closer to that, but Old Sturbridge Village it ain't. Its a "village" of colonial style buildings that house modern day shops, restaurants, and some local businesses. Its a... More

We really enjoy seeing the ducks be born and be able to go to many different shops and restaurants throughout, there are certain functions they go on here throughout the year, an Easter egg hunt is here every year which is great.

This "Olde Mistick Village" just another name for a tiny shopping mall. If you have time and want to see a real "Mistick Village" I would recommend taking a right turn on 27 and continue until you see the XVII century tiny cemetery on your left side and vary old building on your right side. Then, you will experience a... More

Great place to visit in couples, with families or however. There are fabulous ships, a very nice harbor view, maritime art and places to eat. I spent a perfect sunny day there with my host family.

Walking around the quaint shops was so nice on a beautiful April day. Small businesses full of local fare, art and gifts, refreshing change from strip malls and super stores.

We like to occasionally visit Olde Mistick Village for a change of pace from our local malls. There are shops, such as Georgetti's, the general store, the bakery and the toy store that we love to check out. Of course its always disappointing when a favorite is no longer there or has morphed into something totally different. There's ample convenient... More

Adorable collection of shops in historic-looking buildings. I particularly enjoyed the Christmas and Scandinavian stores!

This is more of a collection of small shops than an attraction, but provides a nice day out and the opportunity to rediscover some of the more intimate shopping experiences, by putting you right in front of the shop owners who know their stores and products very well. It's certainly worth a visit.

We ventured in and out of most of the shops here. They were very nice, the staff in each store was friendly. LOVED the Toy Soldier - even went back another day to make purchases here. Also loved the variety of Christmas ornaments at the Christmas Shop. Ten Clams is a must! Had the best lunch and was very affordable!!!
