Old Sturbridge Village Reopening

July 4 @ 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:30 am, repeating until July 5, 2020

Our staff is returning to campus in phases over the next few weeks, and will be implementing new protocols for hygiene, social distancing and the use of personal protective equipment by staff and visitors. We are doing our best to preserve what we love about Old Sturbridge Village, like costumed interpretation and demonstrations, while keeping everyone safe during what will not be a new normal, but a temporary one.

Our costumed historians will be interpreting throughout the museum. Many of our visitors’ favorite programs have been adapted for viewing outside of the buildings, while new programming has been developed to specifically address additional outdoor aspects to early New England living. For instance, visitors will get to view the potter at the wheel from outside the building while another potter may be standing outside at the kiln sharing details about the firing process. New, outdoor activities will be featured at the households and trade shops allowing us to tell even more stories about life in the 1830s.

Please continue checking our website and watching your inbox for developing details of the re-opening as we approach July. We are working with state and town officials now on the myriad of details involved in reopening the Village. The natural beauty of our campus is something we want to make sure that you can enjoy fully when you return to the museum – and we appreciate your patience as it will take us a few weeks to prepare.
