Many households in early 19th-century New England baked Thanksgiving pies weeks in advance and stored them in unheated attics and bedrooms.

The Bixby House is Old Sturbridge Village’s best researched and restored home. It was home to the Bixby family from 1826 until the 1870s. Can you guess where this house originated from? #TimelineTuesday #OldSturbridgeVillage https://www.osv.org/bixby-house

I grew up coming here as a child and loved it. Brought my oldest child back and she was equally into it. My younger son was more into the animals, but he was 2 so I can't blame him. We all had fun though. Real actors in real period clothing, performing real period tasks, and take their roles and historical facts seriously. There are also tasks you can participate in as well. A great place to visit.

Old Sturbridge Village is the largest living museum in America. With its family friendly atmosphere it's a great place to spend a day trip with kids or friends. Historians dressed in traditional 1830s garb will help you understand what life was like in early America. Old Sturbridge Village also offers venues for hosting events, dinners, weddings, and parties complete with catering. Old Sturbridge Village also offers room and board at the Inn and Reeder Family Lodges adjacent to their village.

Enjoyed the visit to Old Sturbridge Village during the maple harvesting season, though it was a very cold day and we were hard-pressed to warm up anywhere onsite! But I suppose that's part of the experience. It was easy to find and parking was plentiful the day we went. Appreciated the knowledge and friendliness of the people working there.

Living history at its best. Beautiful village, wide open views. Lots of crafts / trades demonstrated. My kids were fascinated. We've been many times. Redcoats and Rebels weekend is the best!

If you're in the Sturbridge area, this place is a great stop to learn about colonial life. There's a large number of buildings ranging from a tinsmith and copper smith to a printer and textile museum. Many of the buildings have displays showing historical items and detailing their historical importance. The only point in which this placed lacked, in my opinion, is with food. I had hoped the tavern / cafeteria would serve colonial style food but it was typical plastic contain salads, pizza...etc.

My kids love coming to play here. As an adult I enjoy these trips more then when I was a child. Being local, it seems we went there quite often in grade school. Not sure how I feel about TVs in the building, but I guess the overhead cost of staff would be too much.

Very cool and fun historical place. I liked the old time pharmacy, boat ride, and horse ride the best.

We had a nice time here with the kids but I wouldn't go back. The admission fees are a bit high, $28 per adult and $14 per kid to get in. There were very few people working in character. Most of the buildings are set up museum style and they are self guided with little interaction. The prices for food were reasonable but the drinks were way overpriced at $3 for a 20oz soda and $2 for water. There is an ice cream shop which is ridiculous to have in an 1800s village. The general store is also very expensive.
