  • Un vrai cours d'histoire donné de façon interactive. Une demie journée qui en met plein les yeux et le ventre si vous le souhaitez. De bon souliers et des vêtements adaptés à la marche sont recommandé...  more »
  • J'Y étais allée enfant et y suis retournée cet été et c'était encore mieux. Belle marche, belles explications historiques et mises en situations. Belle boutique cadeaux! 
  • This "Village" was nicely set up with the paths moving from 1846 to 1949. When we were there the site was still open, but many of the buildings were closed and only a dozen had interpreters available....  more »

  • This was a great way to see how people used to live in the 18th and 19th century. Talk to the actors to learn more. Keep in mind this place is huge and we did it in 1.5 hours rushing as much as we could. Expect to spend 3-4 hours there.
  • If you like animals and history this is a great spot to enjoy and learn with kids or with friends! Also people are very welcoming
  • I like to visit here every time we are in NB visiting my wife's family. It is a great site to learn about history, see beautiful sites, and maybe eat some delicious, oven fresh bread. Highly recommended!!
  • Nice place to view Acadian history and nice actors dressed and playing the parts!
  • Amazing experience. My kids loved to see how people lived throughout the past 2 centuries...
