A walk through the village gives you the experience what one of the earliest settlements in Canada was like. Staff dress in period costumes and many perform jobs and tasks from the time period. Children can take part in an explorer program by completing various period educational tasks around the village. Once kids complete the tasks, they are rewarded with a souvenir.
