Today was Veterans Day and the kids were off from school, so I took the day off and we all went out to Old Sturbridge Village. OSV is a recreation of an 1830's vintage New England village, complete with most of the typical businesses you would see.

We spent the day going through the village, checking out the various buildings. One of the nice things about OSV is that they have people there who explain how things worked back in the early 19th century. It makes the place more than just a museum and more of an experience. The kids weren't shy at all about asking questions and got a lot more out of the experience because of that.

So if you are in central Massachusetts and looking for something fun and educational to do, I recommend Old Sturbridge Village. It's a good time.
