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.

  • Consider approx 4 hours to devote to the visit, and it is really worth it especially if you are with children. YOU feel like you're suddenly catapulted into a village at the end of 800. From the school to the fields to plow, from the houses of the poor to those of the lords of the country... Everything is a faithful reproduction of what must have been once rural America. So Many people who work there that are lowered in the part assigned to them. The only advice I really want to give is that you absolutely have to avoid the restaurant. Beautiful rooms, furnished with original items but the high cost of the various courses and the poor quality of food do not make the visit indispensable. You Can get some food from outside or stop for a fleeting lunch at the various kioskets or bars. Everything else is nice!

  • Located on the road from Montreal to Kingston, the Upper Canada village is a mandatory stop. This small village makes us relive the trades and life in the middle of the 19 ° century. The people who play the roles of the inhabitants of the village are a real wealth of information about living conditions. It is also possible to go around the village in a carriage. Only small downside for people who are not bilingual, no explanation is available in French.

  • Came to Upper Canada Village for their Pumpkin Inferno and Alight at Night events. I was so amazed and blown away with how well they are put together. My husband and I easily spent a few hours at each...  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!
