  • We spent from opening to closing at East Jersey Olde Towne today, not because the place is huge but because the people who worked there were so knowledgeable, interesting, friendly and talkative! We especially loved the harpsichord player in the tavern who entertained us for probably an hour! Amazing there is no charge for visiting here! Bring a picnic and enjoy the beautiful setting of this place! What a great experience!

  • Knowledgeable guides and a fun place to visit with your friends and family to learn a little local history

  • It was fun and small. We went on a cloudy/drizzly day so we were the only ones there. I brought my 10 year-old niece and 4 year-old nephew and they stayed interested in the village the whole time. We talked to a gun guy, a tailor, a printer, a couple making "radish stew" and the guy in the gift shop. ALL were EXTREMELY knowledgeable about their professions within the village as well as about the time period the village is set in. Again, it's rather small so if there isn't an event going on, the village can be done in 1-2 hours, which is great because it kept the attention of the kids. Also go to the Cornelius Low house while you're in the area because it's only about 1 mile down the road. A great little day!

  • Great place to visit with your kids. Everybody should visit because you can learn a lot of history about Piscataway.

  • Very fun place. The people there are very nice. It is hard to find though.
