We have been many times to OSV but it never disappoints. One can learn so much from history and this is such a pleasant place to explore!

Enjoyed my visit so much more than I thought I would. It was fascinating to see the print shop and tin shop. Didn't get around to see everything, so there's plenty to go back and see. Enjoyed chatting with the costumed 'residents' and even picked up a couple of hand made heart shaped cookie cutters. All in all, a smashing day out.

Old Sturbridge Village is worth the trip - historically accurate, reconstructed village. The gift shop was very nice and had some unique items in it. I really enjoyed this walk back in time.

the village is quaint and very historically accurate. An easy walking tour. Lots to see and participate in if you wanted to spend a whole day. Our granddaughters enjoyed the demonstration of games from the era. We liked the old schoolhouse and the bank. The gift shop is lovely and staff is very personable.
