Old Sturbridge Village has a deal for you: $5 on July 13
STURBRIDGE, MASS. - Old Sturbridge Village will offer another of its occasional $5 Fridays on July 13 and will reduce its admission prices to just $5 for visitors who arrive before noon that day, according to a release.
The museum also offers free parking.
“OSV's "$5 Friday" discount is a way to offset the sluggish economy and high gas prices and make the museum more accessible for people on a budget. The special one-day $5 price applies to adults, seniors and youth ages 3-17 (children 2 and under are admitted free), but the rate does not apply to educational groups of 10 or more. For details: 800-SEE-1830; www.osv.org.
"More than 2,000 people have visited during our past three $5 Fridays," Jim Donahue, president and CEO of Old Sturbridge Village, said in a statement. "It is one way we can show our appreciation for the support visitors have given us over the years."
“In addition to its antique homes and buildings, heirloom gardens, and heritage breed animals, Old Sturbridge Village offers a host of classic summertime activities that are especially popular time with families. Games like “French & English (tug-of-war), 19th-century ‘base ball’ and other old-fashioned pastimes are scheduled daily, in addition to fishing in the Mill Pond, toy fire balloon launches, and riverboat and stagecoach rides,” the statement said.
More from the statement: Old Sturbridge Village celebrates early New England life and is one of the country's oldest and largest living history museums, with historians in 1830s costume, antique buildings, water-powered mills, and a working farm. Visitors can ride a stage coach, view antiques, meet heritage breed animals, and enjoy hands-on crafts. The Village is open from 9:30 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. seven days a week.
