A trip to Museum Village is a step back in time. Students have a wonderful opportunity to see how people lived and worked in the 19th century. It is an eye opening experience.”
– Gina Boisits, Memorial School, Paramus, NJ

Museum Village is a unique and inviting open-air historical museum which offers visitors the opportunity to explore vignettes of 19th century American life. Using a large collection of eclectic artifacts, the museum provides hands-on educational experiences and exhibits that illustrate the transition from a rural to an industrial culture and economy in America.

Tour Living History Museum

While visiting the exhibit buildings now at Museum Village, you can shop in a 130-year-old general store, see a real Mastodon skeleton, make a candle, step inside a 200-year-old log cabin, sit in a one-room schoolhouse, and watch a broom being made. All that and be home in time for dinner!
