In 2017 Old Sturbridge Village received a grant from the Institute for Museum and Library Services to migrate to a new collections database and create a new online collections portal. The creation of this new portal is a key component of the Village’s commitment to improving access to its collections.

Over the next several years, the Village’s curatorial staff will be working to make the entire collection – including more than 40,000 historic objects as well as its expansive Research Library – available via the online portal. New content will be added regularly as our curators review and update records, so check back often!
