Museum Village is a living history museum preserving a vast collection of eclectic, 19th century artifacts for educational purposes. Using these artifacts and reproductions, we provide hands-on experiences and exhibits illustrating the transition from a rural to an industrial culture and economy in America, provoking thought and discussion about history. Exhibits include blacksmith shop, weaving, farm life, candle shop, firehouse, school house, log cabin, energy and the environment and a complete mastodon skeleton (only 1 of 3 in the entire world!). Special events include a Gem & Mineral Show, Summer Tours, Ghost Tours, a Civil War re-enactment (Labor Day Weekend), No Scare Halloween, Thanksgiving Tasting & Christmas In The Village. Check out our website for many more events!

A staple of Orange County and the Mid-Hudson Museum Village takes you back to the 19th century. Historical buildings, craftsman, and reenactors provide a wonderful learning experience to see how life was before electricity.

Sure is! Nothing fancy, but they have a snack bar. Not far from the Village are the Monroe Diner, a Burger King, & Jake's Way Back Burgers!
