Enjoy expanded hands-on and interactive activities throughout the Village, along with family-friendly performances and entertainment, including music, storytelling, and puppet shows. Meet the new arrivals at the farm (every day) and on Monday (Patriots' Day), take part in martial activities.

Children will be invited to help churn butter, plant a seed, or make an ascending snake.

Visit with Laura Ingalls Wilder on Friday, April 25 as she compares 19th century New England with her home back in the West. Swing by the Miner Grant Store and Bakeshop for some Laura Ingalls Wilder cake and stock up on Laura's books in the New England Bookstore

And, don't forget to keep the kids busy with our April School Vacation Week Discovery Adventures.

Package your trip with our special April School Vacation Family Fun Package, which includes admission, lodging, and more for two adults and two children.
