Before school begins, take the family on a history-making trip to New England's largest outdoor living history museum.

OSV's kids free promotion is running all August long -- up to three kids 17 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by an adult paying full admission ($28).

See, hear, feel, smell, taste, and experience early American history up-close and hands-on at the Village, which is open this month Wednesday - Sunday from 9:30 am to 5:00 pm.

Several family friendly events are happening this August at OSV, including Charlotte's Web Experience with live actors and musicians telling the classic E.B. White tale, and Redcoats & Rebels, the largest Revolutionary War battle re-enactment in New England on Aug. 4 & 5.
