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.

  • very disappointed! too much waiting at each home. .wait you to freeze outside for at least 45 minutes and more... Nice setting.. The trails in the forests are really annoying. However welcome the work of all the Extras and great organization with lots of staff but unfortunately for us it was really too long.. expect you to line up as the round and that at each site.

  • Buy our tickets in advance to ensure a place, from St-Hyacinthe at 5.45 p.m. to have time to do the full tour, but block 2 km from the entrance... Enter the site at 7:15 p.m. to realize that there is a monster crowd... No time for fooling around! It connects trails and homes to race with a wait of 30 to 45 minutes between each. Despite the extension of opening hours, we unfortunately had the time to 2/3 of the way. $ 100 exit for 5 people, it is pay per house. Damage to your customer, your work is amazing. You are a victim of your success and your talent. Have to find a way to manage traffic by your ticket sales. This was our 2nd year. We would like to return next year... but we'll reconsider.

  • Invited for dinner and shows, I was amazed by its menu and its more than correct quality for this kind of occasions. Alcohol is, allow thirty dollars more for 3 people. Night falls and the magic of the old houses in ruins under the effects of lights. All along, grimes, actors come to surprise you and haunt the village. Attractions consist in two parts: for the family and the other for an informed public. Some attractions are still to advise against children but then, this is only opinion parents so they attend or not. Great time spent, without regret and we can congratulate some actors of their qualities of games.

  • 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.
  • Good roleplaying from actors, but has absolutely no Pokéstop.
  • Magnifique et vraiment bien fait! Mmm des beignes de 1840, riens de mieux! Allez vous faires photographier en linge d'époque! Cher,mais inoubliable!
  • Great place all year round. Educational interactive history. Attractions for every season and holiday. Halloween is great!
  • 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.
