Old Sturbridge Village

Old Sturbridge Village is a nonprofit, educational museum where the life of an early 19th-century rural New England town is re-created year-round.

Enjoy the seasons while losing yourself in another time and place. Every day brings something fun, every season something special — from lambs and calves cavorting in springtime to fall's fiery foliage, from Washington's birthday celebration in winter to summer's rousing Independence Day.

Stroll around our 200-acre Village and meet working farmers and craftsmen. Visit for a while with housewives and shopkeepers. At the Widow Fenno's learn about spinning. Lend a hand with kitchen chores at the Fitch House hearth. Tour the Village Common with the town gossip.

Six Flags New England


Discount tickets for admission to Six Flags New England are available for sale at the Village Green Campground Country Store.

St. Anne Shrine, Icon Chapel and Museum

St. Anne Shrine is a sacred place, dedicated to St. Anne, mother of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Pilgrims and Visitors come to the Shrine seeking physical and spiritual healing, and in this peace-filled atmosphere they find hope, strength and comfort for themselves and their loved ones. The natural beauty of the grounds, the Way of the Cross, the Lourdes Grotto, the Scala Sancta (Holy Stairs) and many other prayerful places provide an ideal setting for contemplation and meditation.

Most of the icons on view in the Icon Chapel (adjoining the Gift Shop) were obtained by the various Assumptionist priests who served as chaplains to the foreign diplomatic corps in Moscow from 1934 to 1998. Nearly all were icons that were in Russian homes and used in family devotions until the Soviet regime made possessing them dangerous .


Mass Audubon
Laughing Brook Wildlife Sanctuary

Explore Laughing Brook’s 356 acres of woodlands, meadows, and streams along its four-mile trail system. Be on the lookout for the many signs of wildlife that live at the sanctuary, including fishers, warblers, thrushes, various reptiles, and amphibians. Listen for the running brook and for kingfishers and other migratory birds, which signal the return of spring at Laughing Brook. The former home of naturalist and children’s author Thornton W. Burgess is located on the sanctuary grounds, making Laughing Brook an especially appropriate place to learn about the world of nature and to continue his living legacy.

Quabbin Resevoir


Quabbin Reservoir is one of the largest man-made public water supplies in the United States. Created in the 1930's by the construction of two huge earthen dams, the reservoir is fed by the three branches of the Swift River, and seasonally by the Ware River. Four towns were flooded in the Swift River Valley. Construction of the reservoir remains a great engineering feat, and Quabbin is one of the largest unfiltered water supplies in the world. The reservoir is 18 miles long and has 181 miles of shoreline including 61 miles along the reservoir's 60 islands. Quabbin collects as run-off an average of one-half of the water that falls as rain or snow on the watershed. When full, the reservoir holds 412 billion gallons of water.

Emily Dickenson Museum


The Emily Dickinson Museum: The Homestead and The Evergreens consists of two historic houses in the center of Amherst, Massachusetts, closely associated with the poet Emily Dickinson and members of her family during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The Homestead was the birthplace and home of the poet Emily Dickinson. The Evergreens, next door, was home to her brother Austin, his wife Susan, and their three children.

The Emily Dickinson Museum is dedicated to educating diverse audiences about Emily Dickinson’s life, family, creative work, times, and enduring relevance, and to preserving and interpreting the Homestead and The Evergreens as historical resources for the benefit of scholars and the general public.

Basketball Hall of Fame

The game of basketball began in 1891. There are few sports that have a greater or richer history. The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's mission preserves and promotes the game at all levels and serves as basketball's ultimate library of history. Basketball's history is long and storied. If you thought you new everything about the game, think again. A great destination for fans new and old.
