  • Awesome experience for me and my family! The cast is totally immersed in the life these people lived, it really gives you a glimpse into the past. The buildings are well maintained and decorated. The cast is really so nice and informative. I feel like I learned a lot that day. The kids enjoyed the black smith shop the best. Well worth it.
  • Unique experience and opportunity to learn authoritatively about the trades (forging, boat building, fishing) and living in the period from locals who are the actual descendants of the original acadians. They have a working forge, build their own boats and keep farm animals. A wonderful place to visit for people of all ages.
  • Not a tourist trap, but a wonderfully preserved Acadien village with lots to see and experience. This is a very well staffed village with lots of friendly folk to explain the history of the village, the homes, the people, and how they lived. The homes have wood fires going with traditional lunches being prepared on wood stoves by the staff for the staff. Molasses cookies and Rappie Pie samples are freely offered to visitors are a nice touch. A working forge and a blacksmith demonstrating his craft, as well as a boat shop with staff to explain and demonstrate dory making are nice ways to see, hear and experience history. All staff are in traditional dress and make you feel like you have stepped back in time. Very thoughtful rest stops have been set up to allow you to enjoy the views. The cafe has fresh made sandwiches and baked goods that are homemade, and are reasonably priced. The gift shop is well stocked with tasteful gift items and art. The views of the ocean are beautiful and worth the price of admission, but I cannot over emphasize how friendly the staff were. My whole party raved about their afternoon there.
  • It's very true to the Acadian history of the village. It is staffed by very polite local people who will gladly answer your questions. Lunch is also great.
  • Loved the historical village and all those who played their part. Lots of fun sharing with them. Awesome people. Awesome history.
