What is Sturbridge Village?

Old Sturbridge Village in Sturbridge, Massachusetts, is the largest outdoor history museum in the Northeast. The village transports visitors back to the early 19th century. A rural New England town, comprised of 40 buildings, brings to life the look and feel of a historic landscape.

Working farms, meetinghouses and trade shops come together to provide an immersive educational experience for guests, as visitors wind through the museum on dirt roads and pathways.

From the historic village to the Museum Education Center, Sturbridge Village aims to educate and inspire.
