  • for a historical village. A majority of the shops that were open are retail or restaurants. If you want to go inside any of the historical buildings you must purchase a ticket. The village is only abo...  read more »
  • Nice little place with shops down both sides of the street and a couple of restaurants to eat at. Not much to do but a neat place to stop and check out. 
  • We arrived Friday afternoon with enough time to check out a few shop before they closed at 5:00. Shop owners were all very much and helpful. We then took a walk at the triple locks park that we had to...  read more »
  • My husband and I spent the weekend in Roscoe Village. We took the Living History Tour and we highly recommend the tour! The tour guide was so sweet and she had vast knowledge of how life was really like during the days the canal was being built. She answered every question and was just as sweet and pleasant as could be!
  • We love going to this place. Food is great and the stores and museums are real nice!
  • Historically accurate. Nice interpretations. Dog friendly and great campground within walking distance.
  • Roscoe Village has gone downhill drastically since the Montgomery Foundation sold off parts of the town. There are many shops that are closed that used to be there (canal level) and some of the ones still there are not very interesting. Sadly, what used to be the Old Warehouse Restaurant, is just not very good anymore. The other day as soon as they opened you could see the front doors with dirty windows and needing a coat of paint. Not inviting at all. We had lunch at "Uncorked" at noon. The food was great, the waitress very good, but we were the only ones there. At lunchtime! Amazingly, the Canal Days Festival that was a HUGE draw, is no longer in the town and I was told by a worker that it is barely alive if at all over in town. I remember when they were restoring this place when we moved there back in the fall of 1967. It used to be wonderful and we used to visit from out of state about every year. This may have been our last trip. There is little charm and little to see other than the old buildings. One shop even has a sign, "Open By Appointment". That's the way to keep people coming in!
  • Very historical and interesting to see. I remember going on a trip in the third grade; we waxed candles and saw a blacksmith and checked out his shop, went through a museum of the area, and overall got to experience what life was like back then. Definitely worth going
