  • When touring the site remember this is where the dreams of a nation died. History is written by the victors so while the site tries to be sympathetic it doesn’t really hit this point. Proof is the sta...  more »
  • We drove until Batoche national historic site. Along the way we stopped twice to see monuments associated with the story of Louis Riel and the battle of Batoche. I especially liked visiting the cemetery where Gabriel Dumont, Louis Riel in the events of Batoche very close is buried. My husband chose the film which documented and explained events... Overall, it is well, but say that the guides were not of the most dynamic. In addition, it was very hot and have to walk far enough to go to the cemetery.

  • Surprisingly one of the best sites we have visited, movie (40min) is a tad too long but allows greater preview of site. Pay the $2.40/person for the shuttle for the best guided tour, Ronald shared fantastic stories! "Journey Back in Time" skit by staff was really enjoyed by our 9 & 11 year old. We were surprised to spend over 4 hours here with our family.
  • Great historic site. Lovely walking trail.
  • I wish stronger views were portrayed. Without prior knowledge I wouldn't have understood very much, or understood the significance. Also, gives a bad impression of government run facilities. The restaurant/food cafeteria closed before the park, meaning at the end of the day 20 people wanted to buy a snack for the drive home, but couldn't because it was already closed. Pretend you're supposed to recover costs. I love PC
  • Great place to start learning about Riel and his fight for the recognition of Metis and Aboriginal rights. Do not be fooled by the Government of Canada's telling of Riel, do additional reading on your own. If Riel had his way Canada would have ended at Manitoba, our country has whitewashed his noble story.
  • this place has alot of information very informative
