We enjoyed everything. The tinsmith was the best person we had met all day, stayed and chatted with him for 20 minutes. Learned so much about, making butter, weaving baskets, bookbinder and printing. The old school was fun too. This is a must see for all ages. Don't forget to eat lunch or dinner in the restaurant...great food.

Loved seeing this village. You get to see how things were done a long time ago with real life exhibits like a print shop, blacksmith, etc. You also can take a carriage ride around the area.

Very nice small small historic village with key historic activities displayed and staffed with explanations. It includes black smithing, pottery, basket weaving, book binding, printing and other features. Has a horse carriage ride.

I went on vacation to Cape May and decided to visit the Historic Village. I really enjoyed walking around the town as well as the horse drawn wagon ride. Because there were very few people at the village all of the staff were very approachable and answered any questions I had. The length of your visit will depend on how... More

Wonderful old town that has actors showing how the Victorians lived. Loved the cookies and sweet baked in the fire hearth

A very nice trip back in time. The employees are very informative and passionate about their work. We went there twice, once in the day for our first visit then at night for their ghost tour (stories may scare little ones). The restaurant is lovely also, fresh lemonade and homemade food for lunch.

My husband and I got here on a very slow Friday. The woman that sold us our tickets was very friendly and helpful, just happy to give us ideas of what to see there. The first thing we did was take a ride on the carriage. Levi the horse needed a break so I went to pet him. What a... More

Interesting historic village with many old buildings relocated from all over Cape May County. The grounds were very well kept. Lunch at the Grange was excellent.

The grounds were gorgeous and dog friendly for the most part. Although if you have been to Colonial Williamsburg, you may want to consider skipping. The staff did not stay in character nor did they even try. A truck load of lumber was being delivered and the lady I was speaking to just broke away from what we were talking... More
