You must visit at least twice, once Spring through Fall, do your homework and look for the special events dates. Then visit again at night during Candlelight week in December. The Museum of American Armor is next door, also a great place to visit. Nothing...More

The Candlelight evening outing was a wonderful event to visit. While the place itself is lost to those who do not enjoy history as it was, the Village historians always keep it professional and manage to create repeat visitors. Only draw back to the Candlelight...More

This place is a treasure. We went to the 1863 Thanksgiving Celebration; almost all of the buildings were open and in several they were cooking dinner as in the old days. The houses were nice and warm from the cooking fires and the smells were...More

This is a very special place!! They run programs throughout the year (except New Year's through around March). My favorite are the military (Revolutionary and Civil War) regiment reenactments and the Halloween festivities. The Halloween is so creative. It's both spooky and historical, with the...More

One of my grandchildren loved the hat making. They both loved the sheep shearing. We all enjoyed the people in period costumes dancing and the old time baseball.

Great opportunity for kids and adults to see history before their eyes. Demonstrations in tin making and pottery shouldn't be missed. The general store is fascinating with goods from the 1860s along the walls. The docents were informative and engaging for the kids. Great place...More

Is it open in the rain? Worth going to if it's raining?

Yes, they are open rain or shine, hot or chilly. Have fun.
What airport would be best to fly into? We have friends getting married there and it's a 15 hour drive from our home (with a 1 year old) so we're looking into other options.

Sorry this is so late. McArthur airport in Islip is the closest but not many non stop flights. Look at Kennedy, more convenient than LaGuardia..
What's there to do on a standard Sunday? Is there anything interesting going on? Shows or anything?
