Great place to learn about the early days in Orange County New York. They have a complete Mastodon skelton that is simply amazing to see.
Once again, This year's (2013) annual civil war weekend was, awesome and spectacular! This is only one of the few great events held at this museum, during the year. Always free parking, and a petting area with farm animals for the kids, make this a great day trip.Candle making, broom making, and a visit to the print shop are also... More
A collection of different buildings you'd find in a village from the 1700s in the north east including a blacksmith and school house.

Certain times of the year have different things going on such as civil war reenactments and a... More
This village is a nice stop to see the workings of a historical village. The area is nice. Parking is easy. There are many buildings including a school, a pharmacy, a forge, and many others with lots of docents to guide and teach. It's a nice day trip if you enjoy history. They get many school groups.

I haven't been there in a while, however, when my girls were little, we would go to a variety of events there. In the summer there is Civil War re-enactment weekend, excellent. In the fall they have a 'haunted' Halloween day/night, non-scary during the day, a little scary at night. During the year though, you can just go in and... More

I went with my son who is in 4th grade and he liked a lot of the exhibits. Almost every one had a guide to talk about the contents of each building. They had a wool spinning, candle making, a print shop, a real Mastodon skeleton, blacksmith, General Store, broom maker and more. For those that said you could see... More
