Step back to a bygone era during a visit to Upper Canada Village, a heritage park and museum. Modeled after a 19th-century village in Upper Canada, the site features over 40 historical buildings, including working mills, trade buildings, and farm houses, all open to look around and see the "locals" at work and play. Watch demonstrations of different agricultural and commercial processes involved in farming, cooking, and smithing, and get to know certain aspects of contemporary culture as costumed staff discuss concerns of the times, such as politics, social life, and religion.

  • Surprisingly enjoyable view into life 150+ years ago. Seeing the saw mill, flour mill and wool mills in operation was fascinating. Bakery, blacksmith, all aspects of village life on display. Original period buildings were brought in from many places near and far. The wife and I both enjoyed it much more than we expected.
  • A great family spot to get acquainted with Canada’s history. Annually hosts the Alight at Night festival for Christmas, and has tours and guides that help understand the history of the area. Definitely better than your everyday history class!
  • A great place to day trip. This place is very educational. It is oriented more towards kids and school tours but still very fun to stroll around for adults and learn a little bit next to some great traditional food and their official beer is excellent.
  • Pumpkinferno 2017 was 'lit' - literally. Very well organized, gorgeous carvings, great ideas and a lovely layout. We stopped in the restaurant for a hot chocolate and ended up purchasing buttery arts as well; they were scrumptious! Washrooms were decently clean considering the night's traffic. One piece of advice: purchase your tickets ahead of time! We were able to skip the longest line by doing so. I will definitely return for their Christmas and future events.
  • The light show at the evening was beautiful. Wish it was a little warmer though. Recommend for all ages. Everyone will have a wonderful time. Free horse ride too.
