Historic Cold Spring Village is a museum comprised of several antique buildings, each with a different purpose. Every building has a representative to explain the history of the structure as well as an explanation of a specific business or activity that would have been performed during the time period of the structure. There is a printing shop, ceramics shop, ice... More

Cold Spring Village is a wonderful family adventure, particularly on a special events weekend. We are "regulars" and enjoy our visit to the bakery, potter, school house and country store. The kids enjoy playing the games in front of the country store. We also like the musical performances at the gazebo. A great time is always had by all.

It was our second day in Cape May and the forecast was for off and on showers all day. My wife and I were looking for something to do and decided on Cold Spring Village, figuring we could dodge raindrops while moving between buildings. What a surprise we had in store. From the enthusiastic woman at the ticket booth, to... More

A collection of homes and businesses brought from around Cape May and restored in a village setting. While there we saw a military timeline encampment which we really enjoyed.

This was a great place for a different outing. I love the historical aspect, as a writer of historical romance fiction, I learn something new every time and can use what I learn in my books. They offer fun crafts for the kids, and both of mine had great time making tiles and other fun thing. We will definitely be... More

This is a nice area to visit as a park walk. Do not recommend in hot weather...seems like there is no air! Interesting history here. Sort of a "mini Williamsburg, VA. Helps to have a discount ticket to enter as seems a bit "pricy" for general admission. Grounds are well kept but be sure to eat before you go. Food... More

This is probably the 3rd or 4rth time I've visited. Each time I have family visiting I take them to this spot b/c it's a sure thing they'll like it. I'd say it takes about 3-4 hours to get through all the houses. Each house has a separate theme, ex: weaving, binding books, house wives who cooked, made butter, planted,... More

Went on a class trip with my third grader and his class. This was a wonderful piece of history. They do a great job of making you understand what it was like in the 1600's - 1800's. We ate at the bakery and at the ice-cream shop. Both were GREAT. there were so many great things to see and learn... More

The lay back environment of Historic Cold Spring Village was such a comfortable escape from our maddening world. It is so much more FUN to see living history instead of reading about it in a book. The tour guides were extremely knowledgeable and eager to share information with us.
