If you like Williamsburg, VA, you'll love Cold Spring Village. There is plenty of parking and lots to do while there.
My wife and I went there and spent an entire day enjoying the different stories of the village, I particularly enjoyed the old school and the challenges that those first colonists faced in their day to day. The actors were very nice, pleasant and knowledgeable, the store had all kind of different memorabilia and the lady that was there was... More
I was pleasantly surprised how nice this museum was. My kids were tired of going to the beach so we decided to go for their pirate weekend. The museum is outdoor and reminded me of a very small (and less expensive) Colonial Williamsburg. Character actors were throughout the museum explaining how people lived back in that time. They also had... More
Returned after about a 5 year absence. There is really nothing there. Some old houses and a few animals. I guess OK for grammar school class trips. Expensive entrance fee. Snack areas some closed. Restaurant has changed hands just about every year. IMHO rainy day would be worse as is almost all outside. It is ashamed that this area that... More
Dear enjoytravelnj, Thank you for pointing out for other TripAdvisor users that there are some old houses at Historic Cold Spring Village. The heart of the Village truly is its twenty-six restored historic structures that offer testament to the rich history of Cape May County. Over the course of four decades, Village staff saved from demolition and restored at least... More
This is WELL worth the visit. A few miles outside of Cape May. An old village, similar to Williamsburg, VA or Sturbridge Village, MA. Houses from the 1600s, with people dressed in period garb, a great place to walk around and see & hear what life was like centuries ago. They have lots for the kids to see, like a... More
My family and I visited this weekend and came in the back side, unaware there was a front entrance to the restaurant. We arrive around 3:30 PM and paid 40 dollars to get in, totally uaware that the village shuts down at 4:30, AND WAS NEVER TOLD WHEN WE ENTERED. I had asked where to get something to eat and... More
Andreg445, I am very sorry to hear about this. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. We do in fact offer a discounted admission after 3pm and I would be surprised if you were charged full price. (I wonder if you were given the discounted price and simply weren't told?) It is standard practice for our gate staff to... More
Charming historic setting just out side of the Center of Cape May. well worth the trip.. Great place to walk around but I would take the hourse and wagon ride first. Plenty of volunteers to make you feel welcome. If you get your timimng down right you can even enjoy some 1700's cooking!!
The interpreters were great, especially Sarah, the school mistress! She was very knowledgeable and engaging! She answered lots of questions about the building and education system of the time.
Ok, I begin this by letting all of you know that I have been to the Historic Cold Spring Village before but it had been a while since our last visit. The newspaper ad/story that said they were having a "Family Fun Day" intrigued me and gave us something to do on this Labor Day Saturday that didn't require a... More
