Interested in stepping back in time?

Old Sturbridge Village (OSV) is offering visitors a chance to do so on August 23, at a reduced ticket rate called “$5 Friday.” This will be the third and last $5 Friday for the 2013 summer. The opportunity is being made possible by the Southbridge Credit Union, according to the OSV website. Admission is usually $24 for adults, $22 for seniors, $8 for ages 3-17 and free for age 2 and under – although this season OSV is also offering free admission for ages 17 and under throughout the month of August.

A living history museum, at OSV visitors can experience what life was like in America centuries ago by visiting the blacksmith, potter, and farm animals such as oxen and sheep. As well there are some forty historic buildings and exhibits.

Strolling through the gift shop is a perfect way to wrap-up a visit; and don’t forget to stop at the Bake Shop for old-fashioned molasses cookies!

OSV is located at 1 Old Sturbridge Village Road in Sturbridge, MA. Summer hours are 9:30 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. through Oct 30. The $5 Friday rate does not apply to educational groups and cannot be combined with other discounts. For more information call 800-733-1830 or go to http://www.osv.org.
