We've visited several outdoor museums & this one was quite good. Although we were there on a really hot Sunday afternoon, there were several exhibitions going. All the Docents were knowledgeable & friendly. Rode the Model T's! Quite fun & the driver was entertaining & a good driver. All the employees, both paid & volunteer were friendly & professional.

If you are at all interested in how things used to work and how they used to be, it is worth the effort see this. The retired third grade teacher spent 36 years single-handedly building about a dozen buildings, to house the various retail and craft shops of the early 1900's (15 in all, including blacksmith, printer, dry goods, butcher,...

Trip advisor said this place was open, we drove 15 miles to get here and it was close. It actually looked pretty dumpy too. Would not recommend wasting your time.

I used to visit Greenfield quite a lot as I had family there. While the others were doing what they had to do, I roamed the area looking for things I had not seen. This is not very prominent and easy to miss, but I found it at the bottom of the first long hill on the Mohawk Trail. A... More

Website said that it was open on holidays. Went on Columbus Day - no one around. Had e-mailed and called ahead of time - no answer. Seems to be an odd attraction.

Old Greenfield Village is only open by appointment and is not listed in the phone book, making it difficult to get to! The Chamber of Commerce can, no doubt, help you with that. We enjoyed visiting the school house, church, store, tinsmith's shop, and more. All have been built or restored by the owner as an act of love. A... More

A beautiful and quaint New England main street not unlike many others scattered through many towns in Vermont, New Hampshire, etc etc. However, at around dusk, things began to get a little strange. You see, these creatures dressed in their best thrift store rags started coming out from what appeared to be thin air. You began to hear them shout... More

A New England "Williamsburg" well worth a half-day's visit. Even if you don't buy a ticket to enter some of the historic houses, just walking around the area is wonderful.

Between visiting Old Sturbridge Village, Plymouth Plantation, Strawbery Banke Museum in NH, and Historic Deerfield the BEST by far was Old Greenfield Village!!! I cannot say enough about this place! I've been twice and wouldn't mind going back again sometime. The amount of stock in each of the buildings that this nice retired school teacher and his wife put together... More

Don't bother. A kind of sad attempt to make something of nothing. Might be closed permanently, now, anyway.
