#1 of 9 in Things to do in Drummondville
Step back in time to a chapter of Quebec's history at Le Village Quebecois d'Antan, a 19th century replica village. Meet the villagers in their houses, immerse yourself in life of the past and learn the trades and past times of yester-year. Twenty-five of the houses on site are authentic 19th century structures, brought to the site during its creation in 1977. Among them, discover streets teeming with entertainment, economuseums (small scale production of cultural heritage items), traditional music and theatrical scenes depicting the era. The recently developed "Les p'tites enquête" provides lively interactive puzzle solving for the little ones and the Lemire-Larocque House offers a unique dining experience in a period setting.

  • Not enough scary that it's worth the 3 hour drive and the $ 23 per person. We had fun anyway because we were in good company. But the wait for homes is very long for what it is. The animation on the site is good however. The characters have beautiful costumes and makeup is well done. But still, I would have liked that scary.

  • We followed their advise "Buy tickets online" Yes, 35 minutes to make half a kilometer to get to the site. Not d, ticket purchase... certain that I will not. Then a 10-minute walk to a the main door with an another 10 minute wait even with our ticket in hand. Cool, have happened now... surprise... more than 5,500 people with lines to wait for 30 to 50 minutes for each House. Good... have expected. First House 30 minutes and hope have... some boxes of cardboard with two very bad costume and badly made-up character... 20 small step further... have came out? already? Next... even things... very tall suits with decoration plastic, a mix of value Village and the dollar store. Frankly, not loud. 3 home time only... it's laughing of people has this price the. Never, ever

  • Are you serious? We pay $ 48 for an evening walk? I pay 7 tickets on a group of 16 to get me blocked the entered by your disrespectful agents because unable to managed your crazy party filled of cash, beneficial with profits extravagant, when your pig hole cannot accommodate so many people on your site! Think you that this evening helped you? You have disappointed people, sickened, and more impossible to be repaid! PIs it's your mistake did you hear about your evening of October 21, 2017? For us and for people on the web that date's haunted more than your site to market. You have entered more people that capacity cannot, cannot result of visited the houses in 5 hrs we received a lukewarm, worse than a restaurant meal take-out because at least it's warm, visited a church with a show of 3 min after waiting more than 30 minutes Utes in one go, a cemetery of 2 min 1/2 market with two monsters barely seen waiting once again for 30 min and two home to sides of a duration of seconds or was a 20 min wait, Wow it pays to cheat the world like that! You have mismanaged this evening, you played in the world, and you thought profits $$$. You were on our back $ 768 do the math for everyone in the evening disappointed, because from your good employees we were more than 6,000 people. We are very angry, and with reason, of the never seen on the web his breaststroke and I'm not alone with this rage and be very disappointed when you entered more people as it takes you should be improved at least your late night hours not we put a little corny end message saying the site closed its doors in 15 minutes, serious you should have at least meet people rather than leaving frustrated, in the field of health or even anywhere else there are ts , yes the additional time, or otherwise you're smarter, the site can hold 700 people and to bad for latecomers, takes another day. MISMANAGED, BAD MANAGEMENT.

  • Beautiful place. All the houses are not reconstitution houses but original houses that were moved from different places across the region and place their. Give our younger generation an idea about live before all the convenience they are enjoying today.
  • Truly enjoyed ourselves today at the village. The animators were friendly, outgoing and accommodating. It's kept very clean. Had a nice meal at one of their restaurants. We enjoyed being able to view architectural features of the individual buildings. A shock to see in the Candle House, their collection of 410 different oil and gas lamps. Musicians playing throughout the site as well as some natural voices singing traditional songs. The Village is in a natural forested area on the banks of the St. Francois River, though it was warm and humid there are plenty of tree's to shade you as you walk along. Very different from Upper Canada Village in Morrisburg Ontario. Quite a difference between the two cultures.
  • Awful in every possible way! Don't waste your time or your (big bucks) money! Really expensive, rundown place, terrible acting and entertainers and I have seen better facilities in middle-of-nowhere forgotten gas stations.
  • Great place all year round. Educational interactive history. Attractions for every season and holiday. Halloween is great!
  • Good roleplaying from actors, but has absolutely no Pokéstop.
