  • This is not a re-created village.....it stands as it was built with the exception of the agricultural museum. It's one of the few like left in North America. It's a great place for the entire family t...  more »
  • We had the luck to have been on the labour day weekend here, so people in costumes ran around here, some came with their vintage cars, one plowed a field with arable nags, a small band played Scottish ways (very good!) in one of the historical building in a shop told a very nice lady about the emergence of the shop and their sometimes bizarre goods and stationary engines ran continuously on a field. That was really living history! But even without the whole drum rum is certainly worth a visit, because you visited a well-made museumsdorf, with everything that entails: school, Church, blacksmith, general store, community centre, Friedhof...etc. Actually ideal for a Regentag...obwohl then not so great to get the photos... The entrance fee is about $11, parking is abundant available (for womos) and part of this is a museum with agricultural equipment and all sorts of other stuff. Bottom line: Don't miss it.

  • So far from the road bends towards the site is difficult to understand, so watch out. On-site building is 14. During a "Town Hall" Cafe, we had tea and scones (instead of the lunch of the arrival day). In addition, CAD 3.25. So delicious I ate because they were hungry, but in ordinary times if the taste of regular or? Church and school (one classroom are students in the class of all, that the era of "Anne of Green Gables" and "little house on the Prairie" reminiscent to building), general store, blacksmith shop, has been reproduced in remains of old buildings. Grocery stores can see the old-fashioned Interior and adjacent houses, is interesting. Guests can enjoy on the second floor. People who are interested in the old fashioned way of life is an interesting place. Actually hooked up in the blacksmith's shop (over nails? ) Could be seen making. On weekdays because particular events like no other. Home crowd is below average and was arrived at by local student organizations.

  • We visited Orwell Corner Historic Village with our son, a toddler at the time, several years ago. We had a great time walking through the village and farm buildings. It was so nice to see all the re-enactors doing period-specific tasks/chores. Definitely recommend it for families.
  • In a way it's typical of these kinds of places, but the people there are very nice and helpful, they are happy to explain everything, give demonstrations etc. The place is actively being used for a bit of farming, horse drawn carriage rides, community entertainment etc. We really enjoyed our time there.
  • We enjoyed it as a family activity. The children got to make candles and rope. Plenty of buildings to visit. Animals to see. A working blacksmith who is happy to answer your questions.
  • Great place for some hands on history. Very affordable, fun for all ages.
  • Great old historical village and fun activities
