Welcome to Museum Village
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.
We Love Kids Groups!
School groups, homeschool families, summer camp groups and even birthday parties! We love to give your kids a hands-on view of history
for a fun day of learning and exploring.
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!

Object of the Month
March’s Object of the Month was chosen by our longtime Collections volunteer, Joyce Holloway. It is one of her favorite objects at the museum! Victorian Child’s Rocker, ca. 1880-1890; maple and wicker. Manufactured by Heywood Bros. & Co., Gardner, Massachusetts. This child’s rocking chair has a wicker weave back with a Japanese fan, moon, and five pointed star. It has a bowed crest rail continuing in arms with a chain motif. How gorgeous!
