Great day! It had been years since I had been there.

No drinking or eating in buildings, so prep to have your snacks and food packed away. Also park at the visitor center, so that when the kids finish their super sleuth, they can get the prize at the visitor center (this is the only location to get the prize).

The church is not officially part of the museum, but is a nice visit, but is open only a few hours in the afternoons.

Start early in the day as it does take a complete day to see all they have to offer. Eating at the local restaurant was great! Wear comfortable and sturdy shoes as the streets are uneven.

On Sunday, they are only open from 1 p.m. to 4:30 p.m., so try to go on a weekday or Saturday unless you are pressed for time. If you go on a short day, do the building tours first, then you can still view the gardens as you walk around the village after the buildings are closed.

From Our Editors

Old Salem Museums & Gardens whisks visitors to the cozy streets of a reconstructed 18th-century and 19th-century Moravian town that encompasses 100 restored and reclaimed buildings and expansive, pristine gardens. As they stroll through the 90-acre homage to early Americana, visitors can interact with historical interpreters, view trade demonstrations, and participate in hands-on activities. Old Salem's horticultural marvels include the Miksch Garden—a living illustration of Moravian subsistence farming—and the Family Gardens of Salt Street, which demonstrate the innovative practice of seed saving. In addition to year-round attractions, special exhibits rotate through town, celebrating momentous occasions, and notable people. After traversing the grounds, visitors can peruse souvenirs at a number of gift shops or walk into Winkler’s Bakery for a piece of renowned Moravian sugar cake.
