Owner description: Museum Village is a living history museum preserving a vast collection of eclectic, 19th century artifacts for educational purposes. Using these artifacts and reproductions, we provide hands-on experiences and exhibits illustrating the transition from a rural to an industrial culture and economy in America, provoking thought and discussion about history. Exhibits include blacksmith shop, weaving, farm life, candle shop, firehouse, school house, log cabin, energy and the environment and a complete mastodon skeleton (only 1 of 3 in the entire world!). Special events include a Gem & Mineral Show, Summer Tours, Ghost Tours, a Civil War re-enactment (Labor Day Weekend), No Scare Halloween, Thanksgiving Tasting & Christmas In The Village. Check out our website for many more events!

Very interesting for adults and kids alike. Fourth of July celebration is especially fun for candle dipping, old fashion races, etc. See a real one-room house from the 1800s and a real pharmacy. See a one-room school house, too and toys from yesteryear! Even mastadon skeleten found in Orange County!

If you want your kids to appreciate how "things used to be" This is a definitively a learning/fun experiences for the whole group. ALOT of field trip...For school Suggestions. Easier for the kids to grasp. And you will learn a few things too?

Check out the website to go during an event and you will have a great time if you love historic sites. They have great tour guides who will show you inside the buildings, show you how to make brooms, candles, etc. When we went the store wasn't even open. We had a nice walk around and did some of the tour but would have rather gone on a busier day when everything was open including the snack bar. Place could use some cleaning. I think they are looking for some volunteers for stuff like that if you live nearby.

There's a certain lack of historical focus, but what's there is good, plus it's very well maintained and very clean.

At one time the Museum Village was a sparkling part of Orange County History..Lately...the sparkle has worn off. More closed than open...
