Found this little gem while on a family get away. Our 6 year old loved it as did we. Interesting history. Everyone that was a "resident" of the village was very knowledgeable of who they were playing the part of. Every one of them was great with kids as well. We will definitely be back in the future

The property houses period homes and shops and is a wonderful stop for families with children. It does not have the upper end homes and history that surrounds Williamsburg, VA, but does give a thorough history of what life was like during the late 1700's in the country. Explainations are geared to all ages and the entrace price is in... More

The guides were really informative! The kids learned a lot and really enjoyed the hands on experience! I strongly recommend to other families! It's a great way to learn about early American history

I enjoyed listening and talking to some of the "interpreters". The broom maker, potter, and blacksmith were my favorites. In one of the houses, there was a cat named Jack. The interpreter for that house told us how he came to live at Old Bedford Village.

I've been here 4 times and would definitely return. I love the history and the atmosphere! The covered bridge is a joy to drive through!

Traveling with middle school children, was good to relate school and real world. It was interesting for them to see the size of homes 200 years ago.

I would definitely advise a trip to the Old Bedford Village. It is a great family outing that affords the opportunity to review and teach children about the area history as well as enjoy the beautiful surroundings. There are a lot of interesting attractions nearby too.

It was very quiet & not busy, we strolled from building to building.Not much to see or do. The few people we encountered working did indeed show how things were... More
