    Too much $$ for what you see. The village is suffering from a lack of maintenance. Little information about the architecture of the buildings, the lifestyle of the time where the utility of agricultural equipment. The host staff is laconic. Avoid making the portion of 1.5 km for the old farm because there is nothing to see, buildings are locked. The weed grows in the abandoned pits. In summary the village may have already been interesting but he is now poor. The meal on the site are not recommended: expensive for a little quality.

    Let's start with perspective... the note is really for a young family. for a couple alone, I'd probably give a '4' it is a beautiful place interesting, but not for children... and that despite their (ptite investigation) effort to make it attractive for young people. There is also a certain lack on the part of certain actors are really in their role (Mrs. wheelbarrow) but else do that recite a text without taking the trouble to put a bit of realism. In short, for the price, with a young family, made something else... but if you are interested in our history a bit... it's a must.

    Site, animation, nature is just awesome. But the food is high. Just some scam. Favorite. Animation.

    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.
