My husband, daughter and I visited Old Bedford Village on a Sunday morning. It wasn't very crowded, which was nice. This isn't a historical site but it is filled with local historical buildings which have been moved to this former farm. Since they're not tied to the rules of preserving a historical site they have more freedom to do re-enactments... More

The Old Bedford Village was interesting. We visited around Christmas which gave it a special atmosphere. As we entered each dwelling, the traditions and ways of living and cooking were explained in great detail. It was interesting and we were educated in colonial living.. We enjoyed it.

Went on a Friday. was not much gone on at the village. Was nice to see but would not go back. Cost $18.00 for my wife and I to go through the village. Was not worth the price. I could see if there was something gone on but just to walk through No.

Went to Old Bedford Village with grandkids ages 15 and 10. It was very interesting and the kids had a good time. The volunteers in the buildings were very friendly and informative. We really liked the pottery bldg. The kids enjoyed feeding and petting the horses.

Really glad we decided to do this tour... Very reasonably priced -- very interesting. Discover America's history - educational for children. They had a blacksmith, someone making candles and weaving baskets. Had someone making pottery, and I bought a beautiful piece. Unique learning experience

Great trip for old and young. A Colonial Village setting with period dressed workers. Each house offers education on living during colonial days. Houses are staged with household items and tools of each trade. There are demonstrations in some of the houses and some hands on. The staff is very informative. Check the website for special events which are offered... More

I really enjoyed my experience during the 1820's Folkways event. What I enjoyed the most was having my daughter attend church at 1pm. The teacher was great. I also enjoyed the doctor, blacksmith and pottery man. More important, my daughter had a great except when she complained about the heat.
