Owner description: Historic Cold Spring Village (HCSV) is a open air living history museum that invites all visitors to find meaning, pleasure, relevance, and inspiration in the exploration of southern New Jersey's past. It is a nonprofit, educational museum that is open during the spring-summer season. The centerpiece of the museum is a re-created rural Southern New Jersey town of the "home spun era" set on more than 30 acres. The Village will open for the 2018 season June 23rd. We will kick off our special weekend events on June 16th!

Was disappointed it wasn't officially opened when we went so wasn't able to tour the buildings but was still able to walk around the grounds.

I have elementary children who enjoyed this, as did my wife and I. The live demonstrations were very educational and fun. I think I would have even enjoyed it without kids. We bought a combo pass when we at the Naval Air Station Wildwood Museum to into there and here for a discount.

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 so much fun, we loved it!
The restaurant served great food, try the chicken pot pie, the service was very friendly, but long, it didn't really matter as we had so many things to talk about!!!
Don't forget to bring your own wine if you are so inclined!

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 an awesome bakery on site for treats. The pirates were great in character and we all learned so much in the two hours that we were there. We will be back!
