Old Sturbridge Village Travel Guide: 38 reviews and 106 photos


This is a great place to go with a family or group of kids. I went here a few times when I lived in Boston, once with my room mate, Tamara, and her sister, Heather. The other times with the children I nannied for. Each time we went we discovered a different part of the village that we had missed the time before. I will list all the relevant information in the things to do section of my tips.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A great way to learn about old time Massachusettes.
  • Cons:Young children will like the hands on stuff, but not much else.
  • In a nutshell:A great day trip for the family or a side trip when visiting Boston.
  • Last visit to Old Sturbridge Village: Aug 1995

    I missed the bake shop. How can we see everything in one visit? Just about impossible. Thanks for some different views.

    We used to go to a CANDY store there. I think it was called HERBERTS. Wonder if it is still there?! Boy, this brings me back...

    This place is about 30-40min. drive from my house. I bought some cake mix and bread mix when I went there. : )
