Old Sturbridge Village GRADES 3-5

Make History at Old Sturbridge Village!

Old Sturbridge Village celebrates the everyday life of the people who lived in rural New England in the formative, first decades of our new nation. The Village provides an authentic, first-hand look at the often challenging and rapidly changing textures and rhythms of New England life in what were transformative years – 1790 to 1840.

Unlike traditional history museums, Old Sturbridge Village encourages students to put their hands on history and fully immerse themselves in America’s past. At the Village, everyone has the unique opportunity to see, hear, feel, smell, taste and experience early American history up close.

Old Sturbridge Village… So much more than a museum!
