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
January’s object of the month chosen by our Collections Department Sewing machine; wooden base cabinet with false book display front (Model D-9). Manufactured by Wheeler & Wilson, Bridgeport, CT, circa 1892. What appears to be a bookcase opens to reveal a hidden sewing machine! (Pssst- The books aren’t real.)
