As a non-profit, we know how difficult it can be when it comes to offering great deals to our firends and followers. That is why we are so excited to offer all schools FREE school tours!! Many thanks to the Samuel F. Weller Family Foundation and the Mary Chilton DAR Foundation, all students and teachers who attend the Village as part of a school field trip will be admitted for FREE! Schools must book tours in advance of their field trip date to qualify for this wonderful offer.
Your support is important to the 1,700 schoolchildren who visit our site each year!

We all look forward to hosting you and your families as soon as authorities deem it safe to leave our homes. Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.
