The discount applies to adults, seniors, and children ages 3-17. As always, children 2 and under get in for free.

“The first two $5 Fridays in April and May were very well-received by the many visitors who were able to take advantage of the deal. Now that school is out, we’re happy to help families kick-off their summer vacations with an affordable visit to Old Sturbridge Village,” said Jim Donahue, president and CEO of Old Sturbridge Village.

Old Sturbridge Village prides itself on begin a great place for families, with a daily schedule and special events that keep them in mind. Fun events often include games like “French & English (tug-of-war), 19th-century “base ball” and other old-fashioned games which are scheduled daily, in addition to fishing in the Mill Pond, toy fire balloon launches, and riverboat and stagecoach rides.
