I had a mixed feeling about the Strurbridge Village. When the atmosphere is great outside ( old houses, farms, even people walking in old clothing) the indoors where pretty poor. You would expect the place to be kept in better shape when you pay $20 for a entry ticket. But I have to say that the people there bring you... More

I love this place, it like stepping back in time when days were harder, simpler, quieter and to me, lovelier.

If you have no interest in American History, this is not a place you will enjoy very much, though it's beautiful as well. I find it fascinating! I love that the people working in the Village wear modern clothes and don't seem interested in a great deal of theatrics. They simply know their history, very well. Every craftsperson can show...

We brought our relatives from England here. They really enjoyed it & so did we. The gift shop is a must. The gardens are very nice. I bought a plant to take home. A blackberry lily. Something to remind me of our trip with our family.

We arrived in Sturbridge in late morning on an auto trip to Boston. We decided to spend the rest of the day and night here since we did not need to be at our destination until the next day. After researching places to visit we found Old Sturbridge Village and glad we did. We spent most of the rest of... More
