  • We truly experienced the impact COVID-19 would have had in the 1860s. Hardly anything was open! Our visit was a real let-down. We came mid-week to try to avoid the crowds with family group of 11...  more »
  • It’s a great place to visit and to show the kids what life in the 1800’s was like. However, due to covid and government regulations not all of the buildings are open (even though the web site says...  more »
  • An absolutely delightful afternoon. Buildings are really well maintained. Interpreters were knowledgeable and funny. All equipment is authentic and operational. Animals are loved and well cared for...  more »
  • My boyfriend and I visited this place during Halloween 2018 and it was super awesome experience. The way they decorated this place with all Pumpkins and lights, it was mind-blowing. Very artistic place. Friendly people. Definitely, we will visit this place in this Fall and will book a tour.
  • Unbelievable how little was accessible. We were very excited to see the village...almost nothing was open. Huge line up to enter and even worse line ups for treats. Don't waste the time parking and lining up until they realize if they offer it, "it" should be accessible.
  • This was for the Christmas 🎄 " Celebration of Lights. 🎄 In October we went down for the Halloween 🎃 Haunted Pumpkins walk. The off-season / fall-winter portions of the year are simply some of the many enjoyable activities in the Ottawa River Valley. If you have never been to this historical village; not only would I recommend this venue for the history fanatics out there as well as for job seekers for such activities like repackaging and re-distribution. And, 👍 Yes, in addition to class it as " entertaining " yet some may argue its also very " informative " 😃
  • Great night! Kids loved it and so did the grown ups! Lights were amazing as usual, the wagon rides were delightful as well! Kids loved the horses which we could pet after our ride! The singing in the church was wonderful and a great way to warm up half way through!! The light train ride at the end was a perfect way to end the evening!
  • After 10 years it is everything I remember & more, with their "Alight at Night" festival absolutely enchanting my entire family. This pioneer village will take you back in time to experience how our country's first settlers lived & no matter the season, visitors young & old will appreciate the magic; from the horse drawn carriages to the antique train & of course, everything in between. Food in the Harvest Barn is high quality but a bit pricey!
