  • Well worth the time and money to see! Rated a Gem by AAA, for good reasons. Attractive buildings and furnishings from the colonial and early American period, plenty of parking, great old trees changing into fall colors, well trained, helpful docents and guides at different homes and stations. We enjoyed a hearth cooking demonstration at the tavern and exploring the world of children from early America at another station. The silver display museum was dazzling. Overall, a gem, and a memorable place!
  • Really wonderful place. Beautiful houses in a charming old New England town. Best visited in the fall. House guides are really knowledgeable. Also take time to explore the area it's a beautiful part of Massachusetts.
  • Excellent place to take the family. The staff are knowledgeable and will answer questions. The family center, with it's games and projects, was a huge hit with our boys. Be prepared to walk and climb stairs. Also consider that not all houses are handicapped or stroller accessible.
  • I loved it here. Lovely architecture. Wonderful history.
  • Beautiful depiction of historical New England. Amazing that the community fits into this beautiful village. The guided tours through some of these homes add so much interesting information to these beautiful homes. Plan to spend the day to see everything.
