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.

  • We went for a Christmas dinner package. Although it was one of the coldest days of winter, we enjoyed that time with your family. The meal was good, however, we were really very tight, I would advise the owners to analyze the situation for those who find themselves at the back of the room near the wall. hard to pass when there are people. Music and singers was very good. Unfortunately, I can't talk to you about activities outside, it was too cold. Even the horses were still inside. The kids enjoyed to meet the elves and the real Santa Claus!

  • Village to visit every twenty years no less. Having a hard to renew itself. L, whether summer or winter is the same the main attraction are the House, although there are a few activities satellite that can please the people and who put life in this village. Kudos to the volunteers and players in homes that play their role. Do not you have not sold junk 3times too expensive for what it's worth (donut without taste a $ 2.25, white bread $ 6 microphone silly$ 6.50 et cossins package sold as grab a jar of jam)

  • Go there early. The 30 minutes walk in the forest is the most scary place. Note: long line ups to get into a haunted house does NOT necessarily means that it is the best one. Pick the ones with shorter lines up, you will waste less time and you will get the same enjoyment.
  • The Christmas village is horrible. Way too expensive for such a boring experience. Seeing the houses lit up is nice but that's it... all the activities are extremely boring and just plain lazy on the part of management. Also, the meal cost 30$ per person and is aweful! I've never tasted food like that in my life. It wasn't even edible.
  • I'm a native English speaker and I thought this place was really cool... The old cars driving around and the demos are super cool. I wish they had more free stuff on the inside as the tickets to get inside are NOT cheap... By the way, NO English is spoken there so French is a necessity.
  • We didn't know about this place until we saw a sign for it near the exit. Very enjoyable experience seeing what life was like in early Québec. Wasn't overly busy though it was rather expensive for our group.
  • Really nice set up but not so great for kids when animation isn't there weekends that's a huge fail. They should visit the Acadian village in New Brunswick to see how it's really done.
