The village has quite an assortment of original buildings brought in from many different sites in New England, so they were truly authentic. I felt there should have been more "villagers" milling about, talking to vacationers like myself as if this were a true to...More

We were very excited about coming to this place, but were let down. The $20 admission price, which allows you a return visit the next day, was way out of line. After visiting Williamsburg in Virginia, and Mystic Seaport (a much better deal) in Connecticut,...More

A wonderful place to wander round a working museum and to gain some insight into the hardworking lives of people who lived in that community. To see the shoemaker, the forge worker, the woman striving to make butter obviously makes the visit much more insightful...More

I last visited in 1966 and was surprised just how much the village includes...perhaps it has grown. As a fan of Colonial Williamsburg and other recreated colonial villages, I found many general similarities but enough differences to really get a lot out of our visit....More

Everything about the night was incredible. It was cold and windy, and you could smell the bonfires in the air. It was masterfully done. From the hooded guides holding lanterns, to the actors, the journey around the village, right down to the horseman finale. Highly...More

The overall performance was very good. The actors combined contemporary humor with 1700's period dress. Their singing voices were good and they made a lively troupe. My friend and I are ardent horse lovers so we eagerly awaited the finale. We lucked out: the weather...More
